From Bank Premises to Bar!

Commercial premises located at 64-66 Market Street, Shaw that was formerly occupied by the Yorkshire Bank could potentially re-open as a public house now that plans for a change of use to an A4 Drinking Establishment have been approved by Oldham Council.

The property is situated within a dominant position within the centre of Shaw on the High Street, we have now been able to widen the market capture, which would significantly improve the frontage as well as generating interest in the development to open the building up making it far more attractive to retailers searching for suitable premises in the area.

Commercial Manager Verity Ellidge comments   “We are delighted that our client has now had planning approved for change of use from A2 (financial & Professional Services) to A4 (Drinking Establishments) which is a real positive for the town centre.

Not only does this open up the opportunity for an independent operator to trade from a main road position with the centre of Shaw, it would unwrap a new lease of life in the town centre generally along with generating new job opportunities “
