Police Station to Become Lancashire Office Space?

Police Station to Become Lancashire Office Space?

A planning application has been submitted to transform an abandoned 19th century police station in Barrowford, Lancashire into multifunctional office space.

ΓÇ£The former police station is a noteworthy building in BarrowfordΓÇÖs heritage and will provide a focal point within the townscape,ΓÇ¥ said a spokesperson.

ΓÇ£Its last use was for educational purposes. However, since it closed as a childrenΓÇÖs educational facility over five years ago, it has been vacant and unused.

ΓÇ£The re-use of the building for office accommodation will encourage the use of the villageΓÇÖs amenities and shops by staff and facilitate the use of public transport.ΓÇ¥

The stone building on Gisburn Road in Nelson was feared to become a target for vandalism following ten years of disuse but the two floors of empty space, kitchen and WC facilities and off-road parking could soon lead to reuse for local Lancashire businesses, as well as a potential dental surgery.

ΓÇ£As far as the parish council is concerned, it is good news that it may be brought into use,ΓÇ¥ Councillor John Pope, Chairman of the Parish Council has declared. ΓÇ£It has been a long time coming. ItΓÇÖs been empty for many years, so we are pleased somebody is making something of it.

ΓÇ£It is a very attractive building and is in a prominent location. It is such an important building in the town.ΓÇ¥
