PROPOSALS to build new homes on the site of a pub in Burtonwood have been given the green light.

Planning permission had been sought to constructed 10 houses on vacant land off Phipps Lane, formerly occupied by the Bridge Inn and Elm Tree pubs.

Warrington Guardian:

And Warrington Borough Council approved the application by Leigh-based Oak Tree Developments on Monday, August 19.

The proposed scheme will encompass eight homes of four or more bedrooms plus two properties of an unspecified size for social housing, as well as 38 car parking spaces.

Previous proposals would have seen 18 homes built on the site, with the pubs demolished back in 2015 as the premises had ‘ceased to be operational and had fallen into disrepair’.
