New proposals to convert a listed building near Lichfield into apartments have been approved.
Lichfield District Council has given the green light to the work to create six new homes at the Grade II Listed Packington Hall.
Listed Building Consent had previously been granted, but the amendments – which include internal access and window changes – have also now been approved.
The building was last occupied by residents in the 1930s after which it was converted into a cable manufacturing facility.
A planning statement said:
“The site has been vacant since 2007. The hall was connected to a sprawling manufacturing and warehouse facility that comprised a significant area to the north east.
“The buildings had been vacant for a considerable period of time and were in a state of disrepair prior to their demolition.
“The extant planning permission and Listed Building Consent approved the conversion of the Hhall to create six apartments.
“The alterations to that consent are mainly minor. In the case of the removal of the lift shaft and associated alterations, the changes result in less intrusion to the historic fabric of the building.”Planning statement
The work is part of a broader development to create 28 new homes on the site.
