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.”
