Planning Granted for Former Kendal Banking Hall
Posted on 23rd November 2011
South Lakeland District Council has confirmed that it is to continue with the planning permission on a former Kendal banking hall, enabling the building to be transformed into a wide variety of different leisure uses.
The Grade II listed Sand Aire House, the former Provincial Insurance Hall on New Road is currently on the market for sale and the granting of an extension of an existing D2 planning permission will mean that the building can be used for a range of uses such as a cinema, music and concert hall, dance or sports hall, a swimming baths, skating rink or gymnasium. The property already holds planning permission for either a restaurant, cafe or drinking establishment.
The character building is located in a prominent central location in Kendal town centre and is within easy walking distance to the prime retail area of the town. The 6,228 sq ft property is of stone and slate construction which benefits from a high vaulted ceiling with the potential for a mezzanine floor. There is additional space at first floor level, of which has been part-converted to provide two, one bedroom flats.
Offers for the freehold are invited in the region of £300,000 and any enquiries should be directed to Danny Pinkus.
