A further planning application has been submitted for the re-development of one of the oldest inns in Knaresborough.
The building and land already has permission to be converted into three flats, three houses and a hospitality venue.
However, if approved, the new application would see an extra two one-bedroom flats built within the current building.
The plan is the 10th planning application for The Board Inn found on 3 High Street in its history.
The property was sold in August last year by Harrogate estate agents FSS Property after eight months on the market. It sold “very close” to the guide price of £325,000, according to the estate agents.
The residential units are intended to be rented out rather than sold. It is hoped the hospitality space will reopen as a restaurant or micro-pub.
The building near the bus station has lain empty for a number of years with the design consultants at MAS Design Consultants Ltd hoping this development will offer a “positive change”.
It is unknown when the works will begin but planning responses can take around 12 weeks.
