Respite Care Centre Plan For Dodworth Pub

Tuesday June 26 2012

PLANS have been submitted to covert a former Dodworth pub into a respite care centre, We Are Barnsley can reveal.

Mr David Cuthburtson has applied for permission to change the Gate Inn on Barnsley Road into to offices, daycare and respite centre on behalf of Aspire In The Community Ltd.

The planning report said: "The development will bring back into use a disused public house that has been empty for several years and has become a target for vandals and thieves.

"The scheme has implications for general community as the current situation with the site being vandalised and used for delinquent activity is not good for the community; the local residents and local authority have been consulted on this development and the current proposal has been agreed as the best way forward for this site."

Yet another pub in the borough lost. along with the Flouch, Friendship, Wilthorpe, Thurnscoe Hotel. The future also looks bleak for the Old Hall inn Great Houghton. pity the planners dont listen to the towns folk.

Pubs close due to people not using them -- if you live nearby a pub that closes then you only have yourselves to blame.

As the saying goes..... Use it, or Lose it
