A planning application has been submitted for the demolition of China House at 288 Aqueduct Street in Ashton-on-Ribble.
The building – formerly the Lime Kiln pub – is currently unoccupied and in poor condition due to anti-social behavior and vandalism which has taken place on the property.
The intention is to redevelop the site with a new building and proposals to this effect will follow as part of a new planning application.
After the site is demolished, it will be leveled to match the neighboring lands for a chance for future developments.
