A former snooker hall in Burntwood is set to be converted into apartments. Lichfield District Council planning chiefs gave the thumbs-up to a scheme to transform the one-time Diamond Snooker and American Pool site on Bridge Cross Road. The first floor of the building will be converted into four properties. The planning application said: “The proposed development will secure the full and beneficial use of the first floor of Lambourne House, a previously developed site, which has been vacant for some two years. “The proposed residential use will be consistent with the mixed use character of the Burntwood/Sankey’s Corner town centre.” For full details of the proposals visit the Lichfield District Council planning website.
