Plans to change historic hall back into a home get the green light
PLANS to turn a Listed hall back into a home have got the go-ahead from Cheshire East Council.
Tytherington Old Hall became a Grade II Listed building in March 1977. At that time it was in ruins, but over the years was restored by previous owners Seddon Estates Ltd.
Since restoration, the site has been used solely as offices.
Now owned by Holmes Chapel developers SHS Estates, the company applied to the council to change the use of the building back from offices to residential use.
And planning permission has been granted by the council for the hall to become a home again.
The residence, on Dorchester Way, Tytherington, was originally built as a 16th century farmhouse, but its interior has been almost entirely renewed with new timber and concrete work.
As part of the application no alteration is proposed to the hall, and therefore listed building consent was not required.
In a report recommending the plans for approval by Cheshire East council, officer Matthew Keen said: “The proposed change of use would have limited impact on the listed building and more importantly it would preserve its character. There are no proposed external alterations.
“It is considered that as the special and historic setting of the Listed building would be preserved, there would be no adverse impact from the proposed development upon the character of the surrounding area and there are no issues concerning highway safety, the proposal is considered acceptable.”
