Latvian Consulate, Chorley

Latvian Consulate, Chorley

The former Latvian Consulate Building in Chorley underwent extensive renovation in 2005 to develop the property into the home of the consul to Latvia.

History

The Latvian Consulate building, aka Pemberton House Farm was the home of UK’s consul to the Kingdom of Latvia from 2005 until 2007. The building has undergone various changes and alterations over the years. Extensive renovation work took place to prepare the building for use at the Latvian Consulate.  This has resulted in a strange mixture of modern styles which are now beginning to look dated. [1]

The residence was sold after it ceased to be used by the consul and plans were drawn up to demolish the building and redevelop the land for use as a rehabilitation centre for people with drug and mental health problems. Objections were made and the building has been unused since the planning application was withdrawn. [2]
