Sunny Bank Road Post Office move and planning application

Few people in Unsworth will be surprised to learn that the Post Office currently located at 66 Sunny Bank Road is due to close. The Post Office is actually moving not far away to Manchester Road (the current Bargain Booze shop) which will leave the former post office empty. Many local residents have asked me what is to become of the shop once the Post Office move out and I now have the details.

A planning application has been submitted by the owners of the premises as follows:

Change of use from post office (A1) to hot food takeaway (A5) with extractor flue at rear – 66 Sunny Bank Road, Bury, BL9 8HJ

Ref. No: 60408 | Received date: Tue 26 Jul 2016 | Status: Application registered | Case Type: Planning Application

The planning application does not indicate what type of hot food takeaway is proposed.

Local residents should take a close look at the application by clicking on the blue underlined link above. You may submit comments (for, against or neutral) against the planning application either online, via email or via post to the council’s planning department. Online comments are by far the easiest way to submit comments (both anonymous and named) and if you do not know how to do this, or have good internet access, the excellent facilities at Sunny Bank Library are available for this purpose. The library staff will be happy to show you how to access the online planning portal.
