PLANS have been submitted to develop an existing clubhouse in Millom.

Millom Rugby Union Football Club, in Wilson Park, Haverigg, submitted its application on November 23 to Cumberland Council.

The plans proposed include the extension, reconfiguration and modernisation of the clubhouse to provide compliant changing facilities and a new gym. 

The design and access statement prepared on behalf of the applicant states: "Architecturally, the proposal is aesthetically pleasing and consists of a single-storey structure which sits well within its surroundings. 

"Every effort has been made to not overbear or bulk up the design to achieve excessive additional internal space.

"Attention to detail has been demonstrated by careful design creating a physically attractive building form that can set a precedent for similar development projects locally, therefore this design proposal should be considered acceptable and recommended for approval."
