New Halfords Autocentre may open in Accrington
12:55pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
A FORMER Accrington car showroom could become a new Halfords Autocentre.
The national brand, which has more than 460 retail stores and repair centres across the UK and Ireland, wants to open a car servicing and repairs centre on Milnshaw Lane - immediately opposite a Kwik Fit branch.
The site was formerly the home of Fraser Eagle Auto Ltd and was used temporarily as a gym and fitness centre, but has been empty for around 16 months.
If permission is given by Hyndburn Council, six jobs will be created and work will be carried out on the building.
Thirteen car parking spaces will be created on the forecourt and there will be seven spaces inside the centre.
The application will be considered by council officers. Halfords declined to comment on the application.
