Former Rossett Royal British Legion club could be demolished to make way for houses

A FORMER Royal British Legion club in Wrexham could be demolished to make way for new houses.
An application has been put forward which would see the building in Lavister, near Rossett, knocked down with six homes built in its place.
The property on Darland Lane, which is  known as Barton House, has more recently been used as offices but is currently empty.
Permission was previously granted for four houses to be created on the site.
However, the proposals were not carried out and approval is now being sought for a larger number of homes.
According to documents submitted to Wrexham Council, the development would include four detached and two semi-detached properties.
A survey has also been carried out as part of the process to assess the impact on protected species, which recommends the plans can proceed without bats or birds being harmed.
It states: “The applicants plan to demolish the target building and develop the site into residential housing.
“The building is a single-storey community/hall building, located within a town environment.
“Therefore, in order to facilitate the works on the building and to inform the planning application, a survey for protected species.
“No signs of bat presence were recorded during the survey. No invasive plant species were noted on site during the survey.
“Given the results, it is suggested that the planned demolition and subsequent works can proceed without constraints.”
The site was previously put on the market with offers invited in the region of £385,000.
A decision will be made on the latest proposals by the local authority at a later date.
