Plans submitted for micropub in Rochdale
22 January 2021Plans have been submitted to turn a former hair salon on Drake Street, Rochdale into a new micropub.
The micropub, named D’Ale House, falls within the Rochdale Town Centre Conservation Area and would use 51sq m of basement and ground floor space for the bar.
Submitted by Andy Smith, of Rochdale Ale House Ltd, the proposals for 18 Drake Street outline adding a men’s toilet, cellar equipment, plus bar and seating, as well as replacing an external shutter with an internal one to improve the external appearance of the building. No walls or doorways would be removed, and the new bar would also be completely demountable leaving no alteration to the existing building layout.
An accompanying heritage statement says the transformation would require ‘minimal works’.
