The total site extends to approximately 0.4 acres, or thereabouts. The site has a current pending Planning Application with Hyndburn Borough Council under Application No: 11/21/0440, with the Application being for the proposed conversion and extension of the existing barns to create four residential dwellings and associated landscaping and car parking. The total development would provide for 578m² (6,221 ft²) or thereabouts of residential floor space. Each dwelling would include a terrace and gardens to the front, alongside driveway parking area and shared access drive leading to each property.

The placing of Cowhill Fold Barn on the market allows Builders, Developers and Private Individuals the exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a rural development property in a sought after and accessible location of many local villages and towns within Lancashire.

The buildings are located off Cowhill Lane, Rishton, approximately 3.5 miles to the east of Blackburn Town Centre and within easy commuting distance of Preston, Bolton and Manchester, being within approximately 1.5 miles off the M65 at junction 6. The buildings are positioned to the north of the existing buildings and dwellings on site.

The current drawings included within the Application provide for the conversion and extension of the traditional stone barn and additional outbuildings, which would provide for a row of four dwellings, with two properties providing for 3/4 bedrooms and two properties providing for 3 bedroom dwellings. The current plans submitted alongside the Application provide for the following dwelling layouts:
