PLANS to return a Burnley pub to its ‘original form’ have been accepted by the council.

The Tim Bobbin, in Padiham Road, has secured planning permission to remove the extensions built during the last four decades and create four small rooms, with a central bar area, instead.

The old basement beer store will also be reinstated for its original purpose, with some modern sash windows installed, in keeping with the nineteenth century building.

The proposals were given the green light by planning officers at Burnley Council.
