TAPTON COURT SECURES PLANNING

Plans to bring the magnificent Tapton Court back into use have been approved

Our aim is to recapture the grandeur of the building’s heyday and create a unique development of luxurious homes in this wonderful location above the city.

Joint Managing Director Georgina Lynch said: “Tapton has the perfect combination of a distinctive heritage building on a large site with mature trees and planting in a great location.

“We are delighted our plans have been approved and will continue to work with heritage officials to create something very special here.”

Dating back to 1868 the Grade II listed house with its many original features will be converted into just 14 grand apartments while the original stable block and the gate house will each become a single, unique property.

Ranmoor House annexe, a later addition to the site will be converted into 18 properties and we also plan to build four new houses within the grounds.

Work is scheduled to start on site later this month

This will be a very special development in a lovely part of the city and if you would like to be kept updated with progress please register your interest by clicking the button below.

PLANS SUBMITTED FOR TAPTON COURT

New life for the stunning Grade II listed Tapton Court in Sheffield

We have submitted plans to redevelop the Grade II listed Tapton Court in Sheffield to create new housing.

It is a glorious building, built in 1868 for one of the town’s many steel magnates, and was once described as a “brass castle above the fog of the town.” It was later bought to provide accommodation for nurses at the nearby hospital and most recently used by Sheffield University as halls of residence for student nurses.

We want to turn it back to the majesty of its heyday, preserving many of its original features such as the ornate staircase and windows and convert the space to create 14 apartments within its splendid walls.

The Court’s original stable block and Gate House lodge would also be converted to create unique individual properties.

Ranmoor House annexe, which was built later, would be converted to create 18 new homes and we also plan to build four new houses in the grounds while retaining the estate’s historic terraced wall.

PJ Livesey joint MD Georgina Livesey said: “Tapton Court has been empty for a decade and is currently on the City Council’s At Risk register. Our proposals will not only save this beautiful building with its lovely historic features but provide a series of unique new homes for this lovely part of Sheffield.

“Saving historic treasures like this is what PJ Livesey has been doing for the past 40 years and we take great pride in creating a new legacy for the buildings we redevelop.”

A full planning application for the conversion and change of use has been submitted to Sheffield City Council and if approved we would anticipate work starting on site this summer.

A fulsome history of Tapton Court and its interesting owners can be found on the excellent Sheffielder website:

MARCH, 2020

PLANS FOR NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD

at St. James Hospital Site in Portsmouth near Southsea

After extensive consultation with the local residents and community groups we have submitted detailed plans for the St James Hospital site at Portsmouth. The proposals are centred round preserving the lovely listed buildings and would create a unique and special place to live.

Director James Woodmansee said: “We believe this can be an outstanding development: beautiful listed buildings converted for living, new build homes of high quality, new play spaces and gardens all within a protected and enhanced parkland setting. It has taken many months to finalise and refine these plans and we are delighted to be ab le to share our vision with the public.”

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE FULL DESIGN AND ACCESS STATEMENT >

The proposals would see the listed buildings converted to 146 properties, ranging from one, two and three bedroom apartments to three and four bedroom houses.

There will also be 59 new build homes, offering three to five bedrooms and an additional 25 ‘affordable’ properties that will include 18 apartments.

The landscape plans include a new 1km walkway, children’s informal doorstep play areas, new seating, wildflower planting and new hedges and trees and a series of formal and informal footpaths connecting the many amenity spaces and linking into the wider neighbourhood footpath network.

At the heart of the development, within the centre of the heritage buildings, there will be a series of courtyard spaces and gardens including a new Kitchen Garden of raised beds providing residents the opportunity to grow vegetables herbs and flowers.

Public consultation about the plans is now on-going ahead of being considered by Portsmouth City Planning Committee this summer.

You will find regular updates on the development plans via our dedicated St James Portsmouth page.

PROPOSALS FOR PORTSMOUTH SITE

We’ve been selected to bring forward proposals to redevelop a large hospital site in Portsmouth.

St James’ Hospital, close to the sea front at Southsea, consists of a number of handsome Grade 2 listed buildings set in 25 acres of parkland.

There is a well-loved cricket pitch and pavilion and a Grade 2 listed chapel that will be retained with options for community use.

The buildings are recently vacant after NHS services were relocated to new facilities in the city and we are now consulting with the local community on how they would like to see the site developed.

P J Livesey Director, James Woodmansee, said: “The St James’ Hospital site is a landmark for Portsmouth and one that demands a unique solution. We have the extensive knowledge and experience to do this and to do it well and will be working alongside the City Council and the city’s conservation team

“This is an opportunity to redefine residential development within Portsmouth, providing unrivalled new homes on a scale that can make a real difference to the mix available, making the best use of a brownfield site and securing a long-term future for a significant range of listed buildings.

“It is an opportunity not to be squandered and our uncompromising approach to quality and heritage will create an exemplar development the local community and the wider City will be proud of.”

The first Community Consultation Event is being held on Wednesday July 17th between 2.30pm and 7.30pm at Portsmouth and Southsea Cricket Club, Locksway Road, Portsmouth. PO4 8LD

PUBLIC CONSULTATION MEETING

We are consulting on plans to redevelop a site on Wilmslow Road at Didsbury

We are consulting on plans to redevelop a site on Wilmslow Road at Didsbury into a unique development of just 85 properties, mixing new build homes alongside historic buildings. The site contains a mix of buildings currently used for offices set within spacious grounds including a large parking area, mature trees and landscaping. Our proposals would see The Cedars, a Grade II listed Victorian Villa converted and extended to provide 21 apartments, the listed Lodge House would remain as one unique home and the Coach House converted to two properties.

We also plan to convert one of the modern buildings on the site, the red brick Parklands, into 39 contemporary apartments. A second modern building, Aspen House, would be demolished to make way for 22 new build homes.

The preliminary proposals can be viewed here:

News & Events, Planning Consultation.

Following close consultation with community groups, Stroud District Council and Historic England The P J Livesey Group have submitted detailed development proposals for the former Standish Hospital and the neighbouring Westridge Hospital sites at Stroud in Gloucestershire.

The main Standish Hospital closed in 2004 and the P J LIvesey Group were appointed preferred developer by current site owners, the Homes and Communities Agency. The soon to be vacant adjacent adult care facility, owned by 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, will be incorporated into the scheme as part of a comprehensive redevelopment. If approved, the plans would secure the future of six heritage buildings which have spanned the centuries. The centrepiece Grade II listed Standish House, its neighbouring stable block together with two Art Deco style ward buildings and the gate lodge on Horsemarling Lane would all be sympathetically converted to ensure they are preserved for future generations. There are also plans to save the site’s distinctive hydrotherapy pool building, which was previously considered for demolition, making way for two distinctive houses. The conversion would be further enhanced by extensive improvements to the grounds, including new footpaths and enhanced green spaces across the site. Making the most of the unique mature landscape and incorporating a range of ecological habitat improvements, the application outlines details for the provison of bespoke accommodation for rare species of bats. These measures would be supported by an ‘enabling development’ of 98 high quality newly built family homes designed specifically to compliment the location. Properties will will range from two to five bedrooms, catering for a broad spectrum of potential future residents. The six heritage buildings will be converted into 50 unique properties:

  • Grade II Standish House – 15 mansion style apartments
  • Stable Block – 5 houses
  • Art Deco Men’s Ward building – 13 houses
  • Art Deco Women’s Ward Building – 10 houses and 4 apartments
  • 1970’s hydrotherapy unit – two single level properties
  • The Estate Lodge House – one house
The plans are now being considered by Stroud District Council and if approved the group anticipates being on site in late 2017 with the first properties launched for sale in 2018.

“Sympathetically converted to ensure they are preserved for future generations”

We anticipate demand will be high, so please take some time to register your early interest here to ensure you are kept updated with all the latest news and developments from Standish.
