Planning and listed building consent has been granted for a significant extension to The Grand in Clitheroe. The Grand provides a cultural hub for the local community with a diverse array of activities including state-of-the-art entertainment, performance and live music facilities. The demand for the current facilities has encouraged the charity to explore options for further improvements. The proposals provide a multi-purpose studio, ‘green’ room, tech/video suites, and improved circulation serving the existing building. The proposals were developed following consultation with the Art Council and the representative from the Local Authority. The extension had to be respectful of the setting, within a conservation area and abutting a number of listed buildings, whilst being mindful of the appearance of the previous extension to the Grand.
