A STACKSTEADS pub could be demolished after its administrators submitted plans to turn it into housing.

The joint administrators of Calco Pubs Limited, Zolfo Cooper, want to build four three-bedroom homes in place of the Hare and Hounds, in Newchurch Road.

Addressing the failure of the pub to ‘operate a profitable business’, a planning statement to Rossendale Council said: “There are in fact four alternative pubs on the main road within easy walking distance which is specified...as a 15 minute travelling time by non-car modes.”

It added: “These pubs capture much of the trade in the area.

“The loss which would be experienced by the local community by the closure of the Hare and Hounds would therefore be negligible given the abundance of alternative similar or better facilities.”

Where are there 4 pubs within 15 mins walking distance of the Hare and Hounds on the main road. I can only think of the Con Club and the Farholme Tavern all the others are long gone.

I wold suggest that, depending on walking pace and route taken, you could walk to the Rose N Bowl, The Rosemount WMC, The Kimberley Club, The Jolly Sailor, The Royal Oak and the Duke of Buccleigh.

Either way, the report is not factually correct!
