There’s recently been an application submitted through the Bury Planning Portal (64644) which is open for comments regarding the change of use of the old Dream Doors shop on Bolton Street into a bar: “Change of use of ground floor from shop (Class A1) to drinking establishment (Class A4)”
If you’re unfamiliar with the location, possibly you recognise how it used to look?
I know there are people in the community who are dead against any additional restaurants and bars coming into Ramsbottom. I can also absolutely see their argument. Bars and Restaurants already make up a large percentage of the numbers of businesses in Ramsbottom.
In addition there are a number currently closed, so what would this new bar bring that the others couldn’t?
Ultimately, this would mean that another premises that currently has the use as a “Shop Class A1” being changed to a Bar.
I’d love to know your thoughts, feel free to leave them in the comments section below. You can also have your say on the planning application on the Bury Planning Portal on this link. If that doesn’t work just search for 64644
