End of pub bowl­ing green plan

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

PLANS to turn an un­used bowl­ing green be­hind a pub into a car park have been thrown out.

The ap­pli­ca­tion to use the site be­hind the Bridge Inn off Church Street in Hor­wich has been re­fused by Bolton town hall plan­ners. They said the ap­pli­cant, Si­mon Kil­patrick, had failed to jus­tify the loss of the bowl­ing green

The pro­posal was to change some of the bowl­ing green into a lawned area while the other part would have be­come a gravel car park with 10 spa­ces.

Plan­ning of­fi­cers also said that the de­vel­op­ment would lead to in­creased noise and light dis­tur­bance in the late evenings.
