Newchapel Club could soon disappear for good from the local skyline. Newchapel Club which has been for sale for a few months now has been purchased by a Staffordshire Moorlands Building company, who have applied for planning permission from Newcastle Borough Council to build 10 homes on the site of Newchapel Club.
The club has struggled for many years and did re-open with new ownership, however this failed and the club has once again been placed on the market. It will be a great shame to see the club disappear from the Newchapel skyline, however residents now need to decide if to support or object to the plans been presented.
The application to Newcastle Borough Council states: "Having struggled financially for a number of years, the club finally went into receivership and had been on the market for a considerable period before recently being purchased by the applicant."
