Public invited to view 53N’s Chipping plans

Simon Donohue

Public consultation is being launched around plans for a new £19m leisure-led development at the site of a former furniture factory in Lancashire.

Investors 53N want to build a quality hotel with associated cottages and apartments, gym, pool and leisure facilities, and family housing, at the site of the HJ Berry factory at Chipping in the Trough of Bowland.

The factory has been empty since HJ Berry went into administration in 2010.

53N's Stephen Chicken said: "The scheme has been drawn up following extensive consultation with local community stakeholders and meets many of the objectives of the Chipping Local Plan including the provision of housing, jobs and car parking.

"We are now seeking feedback from the wider community and would encourage people to come along to our drop-in sessions."

Drop-in sessions will be held in the old barn building on the site at Malt Kiln Brow in Chipping on Thursday 25 April from 3.30pm until 7pm and on Saturday 27 April from 10am to 2pm.
