Green light for Newcastle aparthotel
Panther Properties has secured planning permission for the transformation of the grade-two listed 36-40 Clayton Street, with a ground floor restaurant space included.
Consent, secured by Hedley Planning Services, will see the historic building redeveloped into 13 aparthotel units spread across the upper floors, with the fabric of the building maintained.
The building originates from 1837 when it was created by Richard Grainger on the street named after John Clayton, the 19th century town clerk and antiquarian.
Sean Hedley, managing director of planner Hedley, said the scheme’s design balances the desire to sensitively preserve the historic fabric while delivering a modern fit-out, which complies with all national and local heritage policies:
“As planners, we always want to create heritage projects that deliver a long-lasting legacy. In achieving this, we are able to make a valuable contribution to clients’ plans and design ambitions, reducing the likelihood of objections on heritage grounds. This helps to transform our listed buildings and historic properties for generations to come.”
The plans were submitted in summer 2023.
