A new restaurant looks set to open in the former Greyhound pub at Wingates.

The derelict pub, at the top of Church Street on the A6, is being converted into a new business thought to be a restaurant.

The conversion works have been ongoing for several months.

Westhoughton campaigner Derek Gradwell said: “It is good to see that the building will be put to good use rather than lying empty.”

Planning regulations were changed about 9 years ago by central government so that empty pubs could be quickly converted to other uses such as a restaurant, residential properties or a retail unit. Central government also removed the requirement for planning applications which is why no plans have been submitted for the former pub’s renovation.
