End of pub bowling green plan
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.
