PLANS have been submitted to Durham County Council for the demolition of a redundant youth club.

Glenholme Youth And Community Centre, off New Road, Crook, is set to be torn down as it is 'surplus to requirements'.

It is hoped the site can continue to be used for youth development, as earlier this year Crook councillor Anne Reed said concerns were growing at the level of anti-social behaviour in the town, and that more youth facilities were needed.

A planning notice for the application states that the site will be levelled and graded, and covered with topsoil seeded with grass until a new use for the site can be established.

All asbestos identified in the pre-demolition survey will be removed prior to the commencement of the demolition, if during the works further asbestos is identified work will cease and the client informed.

Where possible miscellaneous debris and any non-structural timber will be removed from the buildings prior to the demolition work commencing.

Debris will be placed into skips which will be sited in a designated fenced off area.

The redundant footpaths and tarmacadam will also be removed.
