Plans to add a function room to a popular bingo hall are currently up in the air due to concerns over potential light reduction and noise nuisance affecting nearby properties.
Opera Bingo in Holker Street, Barrow has amended its plans to ensure that the proposed extension does not project beyond the existing boundary wall. The extension will also be built using similar brickwork to the existing building. It looks likely that the amended planning application will be approved at the local planning committee meeting on 14th June 2022.
If the venue’s owner receives the green light as expected, it will then be able to begin constructing the 103-square-metre extension which will operate as a hireable function room for special events.
