BEVERLEY Town Council has welcomed plans by Beverley Racecourse to demolish existing stables and build new ones along with office facilities and accommodation and welfare blocks for stable staff. A planning application will go before next Tuesday’s town council planning committee, when it’s expected to pass without objection.

A report before the meeting says: “Beverley Town Council believes this application will be of benefit to an important local business which generates significant economic benefits to the town and that the proposals will not adversely impact the surrounding Westwood and pasture land.”

The committee will also hear proposals to create two commercial units at the former Grants Bistro on North Bar Within with self-contained apartments above.

AROUND 400 people attended the open day at the Molescroft Beverley Petanque Club to mark the official opening of an extended playing surface at Molescroft Pavilion. And club chairman Thierry Condette revealed plans to develop a youth development programme, including a junior club for 8-16-year-olds, which was officially launched last night and meets again this Saturday morning between 9.30 and 10.30am.
