Planning permission granted for private leisure complex in Congleton, Cheshire East

Emery Planning obtained planning permission and listed building consent for an extension to Great Moreton Hall, Congleton to form a private leisure facility in December 2019.  Great Moreton Hall is a Grade II* listed building situated in the Green Belt.   Emery Planning worked alongside Paddock Johnson Partnership architects to secure the consent.   Historic England was a statutory consultee on the application and advised that the “proposed pool addition and associated uses in the existing buildings are well considered and would bring back to use, and good repair, sections of the building which would benefit from additional attention.  The new building has been designed so that it sits comfortably in the overall composition of the hall and does not cause any harm to the Grade II* listed building.”
