Lancashire hotel development too damaging

The Victorian Society is warning that a proposed new hotel development near Dolphinholme will cause substantial damage to a listed building.

The owners of Wyreside Hall in Nether Wyresdale have applied to convert the building into a hotel and build an extension to provide extra bedrooms and a gym.

Grade II-listed Wyreside Hall is an impressive nineteenth century country house, with earlier origins, set in landscaped grounds overlooking the River Wyre. It is currently divided into 11 flats.

Wyreside Hall needs a secure future which will only be achieved by finding a long term sustainable use for the house, but the current proposal for the building is too damaging,' said Chris Costelloe, Conservation Advisor for the Victorian Society.  'The large extensions and car parks haven't been adequately justified and the quality of the design is poor.'

The Society is concerned that the proposed changes will harm the setting of this important listed building.

The Victorian Society is urging Wyre Council to refuse permission for the scheme.
