I don't know if it's the green on the render but that just look terrible.

What is with today and bad quality plans being submitted?

I see they've gone for the standard lens flare to try and distract from the bile coloured render...

Cheap and ugly... Chatton's right - I'm amazed they haven't provided large "night-time shots"...

The only saving grace I suppose is that given its location, very few people will know its there.

This is around the back of Popolo? I didn't even realise it was a public street... Good that it's hidden away, but it still ought to be cleaned up a bit. Even a more neutral colour for the cladding panels would let it blend into the background better. Seriously, green?!

What could it become, I wonder?

The former Toll House, Coroners Court and Bridge Medical Centre is now being used by the TYNESIDE CYRENIANS - they were using it as offices but have a planning application to change of use from offices (Class B1) to non residential institution (Class D1) - see http://planningapplications.newcastl...=LELL93BSAP000

I hadn't realised that it is still owned by Newcastle City Council.

Built as a Toll House for the original Tyne Bridge, circa 1879

During at least 1959 the building was Newcastle Coroners Court, Kelly's Directory has it shown as number 1 Sandhill. The storage space at the rear of the building (green metal doors) was used as a Mortuary. I understand that it became a Mortuary when the DEAD HOUSE at St LAWRENCE closed down.

One 'strange tale' but true, was that the Caretakers job description at the GUILDHALL included the requirement to sew up the bodies following autopsies at the Mortuary.

In the 1970's it also operated as a Doctors surgery serving Newcastle's "homeless".

The building was also used during a TV series (Close and True) starring Robson Green and James Bolam in a story involving a solicitors business. Some nice shots of the inside of the building (assuming it wasn't a "set").

As this is the only TOLL HOUSE left in Newcastle I'm a little surprised it doesn't appear to have Listed Status?

It's Grade II listed - it says so just above the rental price, near the bottom of NH's advert you quoted.

Doh!

Yes, must get myself along to Specsavers

Wonder why it isn't mentioned that its a Listed Building in the 'Constraints' section on the City Planning site?

Steve,

being Listed sometimes is not a constraint. It shows that the building is extra special for one reason or another. It does mean that there is another hurdle to go through to keep that building ' special'.

Cheers

It seems odd that they've gone for a red sandstone, when Newcastle is predominantly a yellow sandstone

Anyone know if there is an archaeological survey/dig happening, also what is the planning application reference for the alterations, cannot seem to find it of the Cities Planning site?
