Planning permission granted for conversion of a former Textile Mill Into Apartments.
Following a successful meeting with the planning committee, planning permission has been granted and listed building consent given for conversion of a former textile mill into 14 two bedroom self contained residential apartments.
The mill was originally built in 1900 for the silk manufacturers, Brough Nicholson & Hall, as part of the Cross Street Mill complex which was designed by Leek Architect William Sugden.
In the picture above, the building in the left foreground is a later addition to the Cross street complex, which houses an Indian restaurant on the ground floor and a range of ‘offices /art studios, which are to be converted into two apartments. To the right in the foreground, is a small electricity sub- station. In the middle ground on the right is the former warehouse/annexe building, which is to be demolished. The tall Mill building in the left middle ground is the four storey which is to be converted into 12 apartments. In the middle distance, the upper floor of the rear of Cross street can be seen, the remainder is obscured by a link building formed between the Main mill building and the annexe building.
The removal of the annexe building shall provide the new occupants of the apartments with a better outlook and also, will reveal the main mill frontage and also the detailed rear elevation of the grander Cross street mill. It will also provide off road parking for 16 vehicles for use by the occupants of the new apartments
The apartment living is attractive to both young couples looking to start on the property ladder but don’t want the added responsibility of a garden to maintain, and also for more elderly people who want to downsize, and therefore free up larger houses for families.
The proposed apartments shall breathe fresh life into a redundant building.
