Broughton Parish Council has purchased the Toll Bar Cottage and, on 6 November 2019, received planning permission for change of use from a domestic dwelling to Community Meeting Rooms/Café and to extend and renovate the premises.

The work is in 2 phases;

  • Phase 1 the renovation of the Cottage to enable the café to open
  • Phase 2 building the extension and landscaping the gardens

The Parish Council is looking for the appropriate trades for this work which is being overseen by the Task & Finish Group set up to manage this project.

If you are interested in quoting for Phase 1 please contact Priority will be given to local tradesmen.
