The developer planning to renovate and extend a famous historic building in the west end of Newcastle is delighted announce that, after extensive consultation, plans have been given the green light.
Following the planning approval being awarded, Pendower Hall Limited will now be breathing life back into the Grade II listed building, with works anticipated to start on site this Autumn. The former home of the Pease family, which boasts extensive grounds, has stood empty for a decade. It will now be transformed into a range of state of the art office accommodation with onsite finance and technology support along with an historical exhibition and a Grand Hall conference and event venue for up to 450 people.
David Redhead, project manager for Pendower Hall Limited, said: “It has been a long 23 month plus journey to get this far, so you can imagine how delighted all the team involved in Pendower Hall are to have been awarded planning. “We are really looking forward to getting on site. “Our vision to refurbish and adapt Pendower Hall is finally going to come to fruition. It will soon be a business commumity that creates jobs and inward investment alongside offering itself as a major venue for large events of up to 450 people, be they weddings or conferences.” The works on site are also benefiting adjacent Hadrian Special School, with the school already expanding its facilities the developers will be providing additional car parking and re-designed grounds to help with the expansion.
Careful attention to detail will ensure the refurbishment reflects the historic characteristics of the hall, whilst the many archaeological finds from the nearby Military Way and Vallum will provide the basis of unique exhibitions, displays and interpretation for visitors, schools and those working on the site.
