A LANDMARK building in Barrowford is set to go on the market for sale.

Pendle Council’s Executive was told in a report last night that Holmefield House will definitely become vacant after current occupiers Housing Pendle and the Multiple Sclerosis Society move out - the latter as early as next month.

The report says a suitable employment or residential use should be acceptable for the building, but a retail one less likely as it is not in the town centre.

Members were asked to declare the site surplus to requirements and market it for sale. Barrowford Parish Council has expressed an interest in using or managing the site.
