We are about to start work on Phase 1 of the improvements to the building. This will involve the complete refurbishment of the Utility Room including opening up an existing stone staircase to a room below that will be used for storage.
Plans have been submitted to Kirklees Council for Building Regulations approval to make a doorway connecting this storage room to the existing kitchen on the street level of the building. This will give full internal access within the building, it will also allow for improvements on the existing toilet and kitchen to give a new shower and changing room and improved kitchen.
Enlarged copies of the plans can be viewed by clicking on the images.
Ideas are also being prepared for how the upper floors could be used for accommodation. The drawing below is a concept layouts for future work and has not been approved by Kirklees Council Planning Department
