The baths had most recently been used by Life Church but have sat empty since 2014

Plans were passed by Burnley Council last year which allow the erection of five houses and an apartment block on the land.

It was most recently used by the Life Church which moved to the building from Queensgate in 2005, but in 2014 the church moved to a new building in Sycamore Avenue.
