First published in News

DIVIDING a house in the Edgworth Conservation area in two has been backed by local ward councillor Jean Rigby.

She has urged Blackburn with Darwen borough planning committee to approve the application by Everest Estates to split the unoccupied two storey house in Bolton Road, Turton. She said it would ‘radically improve this property’.

But neighbour Alison Worthington, of Bolton Road, accused the owners of seeking to make the property a shared house or student dwelling ‘to create more people and problems’ and make local parking a ‘nightmare’.
