The planning application for the proposed Townscape Heritage Inititiative funded works for the Pioneer Building is available online here
Equilibrium Architects have produced the designs on behalf of the building owner, working with representatives from Bacup's THI Partnership Board.
The proposals seek to enhance the building's historic character through the insertion of shop fronts in proportions, materials and designs similar to the originals.
As part of the works the clock tower and mechanism will benefit from a comprehensive overhaul.
