Community facility plan abandoned by Horton-in-Ribblesdale Parish Council
8:00am Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
Horton-in-Ribblesdale Parish Council has abandoned plans to turn a row of former quarrymen’s cottages into a community facility.
Quarry owner Hanson was concerned that Beecroft Cottages were becoming derelict and had offered to work with the parish council to find a community use for them. The council proposed turning them into an information centre focusing on the geology and mineral wealth of the Dales.
However, the council has now said that, due to a lack of community interest, it would not be taking the scheme further. It thanked Hansons for its generous offer.
