Flats to be built on derelict pub site

A boarded-up former pub built in the 1880s will be demolished to make way for 26 social housing flats.

Wellingborough Homes will build the homes on the site of the Dun Cow pub in Gold Street, Wellingborough.

Wellingborough Council’s planning committee approved plans for the development and plan to demolish the existing former public house and outbuildings at a meeting on Wednesday, February 27.

The development will include 26 apartments and car parking.
