Finally after months of waiting I have found out today that the planning development for Great Barr Hall is in.
This appears to be the first news of this and the planning application was submitted on the 2nd October and is number 13/1330/ND
It can be found by accessing this LINK and entering in the Planning application number.
All documents are found in this link but the key details are
Environmental Impact Screening Opinion for restoration and alterations to Great Barr Hall Grade II* Listed Building and Grade II Registered Park including:-
– creation of hotel/wedding conference
– restore lawns to Great Barr Hall
– Gatehouse lodges
– maintenance building/store
– 58 new dwellings
– Enhanced open space & nature conservation
– Acoustic barrier & planting tree belt
– Boat House
– Demolition of Farm Buildings
The number of new dwellings is lower than I expected at 58 ( I expected 100) but the plans indicate very high value properties. I have to read the documents in detail before I come to any snap conclusion but I am minded to say that I will support this development.
Let the debate begin !
