Planning Applications

Well, pursuing my new hobby of viewing the new planning applications every 2 weeks, am often bemused by some of them e.g:-

New play area on Dale Street which appears to be half a football field as they state 'one goal end'

Erection of totem pole on Hyndburn Road .. is this some fancy word for vertical advertising pole.??

But the creme de la creme was an application for swimming pool, terrace and fence down White Ash Lane, Oswaldtwistle ?!?

Suppose I got to read between the lines and official jargon ... but .....

I think you will find it's actually a ducking stool for when the locals get out of control

No, I'm perfectly serious. I'll see if I have a photo of it. I haven't been up there for a while so not sure if it's still there. If you go along to the end of the houses on the left and then turn down the side and go down that path a few yards it's there - or at least it was..

Mmm - nice location. You've just reminded me that I never did photograph that totem pole. Must try to remember to do that.

re: Planning Applications

Along with a new building for our station and no parking application from Oak Street, off Blackburn Road going towards Rishton, came across an application to change Vine Mill, Ossy from warehousing to artist studio, gallery, cafe and retail, requested by an organisation named Feelslike.
Looks like we are going to become the new cultural centre of Lancashire folks:-
