NEW plans have been drawn up to convert a former social club.

The plans are for the change of use of the former Rockware on Shaw Street, St Helens from a licensed premises to a mixed use adult day care centre and a light industrial unit.

Plans have been sent in by Marie Cunliffe, of Ever Evolving, which provides open day care provision for young adults with additional needs.

The new application will "supersede" previous plans to convert the building into industrial units and possibly a sports bar or convenience store, which were approved last year, should permission be granted.

Plans say the ground floor would include an entrance leading to an activity room, which features a separated kitchen area.

It is also proposed for there to be a reception and office and sensory room next to the activity room, following into a main function room.

There will also be toilets, an additional office and a changing room.

Meanwhile, the light industrial unit will remain as per the previously approved plans.

The application is on standard consultation to the public until November 2.

A determination deadline has been set for November 30.
