A planning application has been submitted for the demolition of China House at 288 Aqueduct Street in Ashton-on-Ribble.

The building – previously the Lime Kiln pub – is currently unoccupied and is in a poor state of repair due to anti-social behaviour and vandalism which has taken place at the property.

The intention is to redevelop the site with a new building and proposals for this will follow as part of a new planning application.

After the site is demolished, it will be levelled to match neighbouring land for a chance of future developments.

“The building has also recently been subject to fire damage and is considered to have become unsafe. Ultimately proposals will come forward for the site’s redevelopment.”
