What Future for the Langroyd Hall in Colne?
Councillor Tony Greaves (Liberal Democrat) has written to Pendle
Council’s Planning Manager Neil Watson to ask what is happening at the
former hotel at the Langroyd Hall in Colne.
Questions are being asked about the work that is taking place at the
Langroyd. It is reported to be conversion to apartments which needs
change of use planning permission which does not seem to have been sought.
Also it’s a Grade 2 Listed Building and needs listed building consent for
any alterations (inside and outside). This does not seem to have been
Councillor Greaves said: “Everyone wants to see the historic hall
renovated to heritage standards and brought back into use. But people
need to go through the proper planning system and this does not seem to
have taken place in this instance. There is a danger of a protracted
dispute if inappropriate work takes place, at a cost to both the owners
and the Council.
“I hope it can all be resolved as quickly as possible.”
