The historic Duke of York pub in Colne Road is the subject of an application to convert it into eight self-contained flats and two commercial units.The pub, built in 1881 on the site of an older building from the 1820s, has been empty for several years.The listed building has had a chequered history since it closed. It found itself at the centre of the 2001 disturbances and was used as a cannabis factory.Burnley councillors will meet on April 27th to discuss the application.
