Plans Submitted for Former Tatton Arms Site

Having stood empty for over ten years, developer Britannia Group is hoping to rejuvenate the former Tatton Arms site in Northenden. A detailed planning application has been submitted for a high-quality residential development which will see the sympathetic restoration of the much-loved local building.

Following extensive liaison with Manchester City Council Planning Department and local residents, OMI Architects have designed a scheme which sees the tasteful restoration of the former public house, ensuring the 19th Century building is sensitively restored using complementary materials for minimal visual impact.

A high-quality new build will sit in grounds behind the main building in place of demolished ad hoc modern extensions. All healthy existing trees will be retained as part of a dedicated woodland habitat.  The planning application will propose 28 new apartments, 7 within the restored Tatton Arms building and a further 21 in the new build element.

Says Bill Davidson, Director at P4 Planning, who advised on the scheme: “This is a highly sustainable scheme which has been carefully designed to minimise impact on openness of the Green Belt and yet enable the restoration of an important and prominent non-designated heritage asset. Feedback during the pre-application process has been very supportive and if approved we are confident it will make a positive contribution to the character of the Northenden Conservation Area.”

Says Ibrahim Jamil, from the Britannia Group: “I am very excited to be working with OMI Architects and P4 Planning to put forward these new proposals. This is a fresh approach which retains the openness of the Greenbelt and features the Tatton Arms at the forefront of the design.

“It was a fine balance to take on board all stakeholders’ comments and also create a project which is commercially viable and deliverable, but it was a challenge the entire team rose to and I am pleased with the design we have created. We hope to build on the local support to get consent for a scheme which will dramatically improve the local area and restore the much-loved Tatton Arms.”
