New homes plan for village ‘eyesore’
Last updated at 11:59, Thursday, 14 August 2014
A VILLAGE eyesore faces an “uncertain future” if it is not transformed into two homes, it has been claimed.
Plans have been submitted to Copeland Council to convert the former Beachcomber Club at Parton into two sea-view homes.
In his application, agent Alan B Freeman Ltd, said: “The building is a landmark, with a very uncertain future, without a conversion scheme taking place.”
The application states the building has been used for various purposes in the past and has been vacant for some time.
Concerns have been raised at Parton Parish Council meetings about the poor state of the building.
In his application, Mr Freeman said: “The condition of the building and land is very detrimental to the visual amenity of the immediate area.”
He added: “The existing building is in a very poor condition. The rear later additions will be demolished, allowing light to enter the building from the rear. Many of the existing windows will remain, with additional openings formed at first floor level, along with the installation of that floor.”
A boundary wall is also to be erected between the existing car park and site. Private parking is to be provided within the land ownership for each dwelling.
The application is set to be discussed at the Parton Parish Council meeting on September 10 in the Village Hall. The public can attend and share their views.
