Woolsington Hall restoration 'progressing well' following devastating fire

Woolsington Hall restoration 'progressing well' following devastating fire
25 Oct 2016 By Coreena Ford


Fire crews damp down Woolsington Hall after it was damaged by fire

Developers say restoration work to transform Woolsington Hall into a £23m five-star hotel is progressing well, months after a blaze tore through the Grade II listed building.

Latest accounts for Cameron Hall Developments, the owners of the former 17th-century Jacobean hunting lodge, detail how rebuilding works and restoration is moving forward following the fire in December 2015. The firm received insurance claim proceeds of £1.6m following the fire, which ripped through the building and destroyed many of its historic features. Permission was later granted to reconstruct and restore the historic building, including the roof, floor layouts, staircase, landing windows and basement.

Once completed, Cameron Hall Developments will open Woolsington Hall , on which Capability Brown worked as landscape architect, as a five-star hotel with an adjoining golf course, restaurant, spa and cookery school which could pump £8.9m into the local and regional economy as well as create more than 160 jobs.

The update on progress at the hall comes as the firm reports a 35% lift in turnover to £6.418m, boosted by a jump in sales at Wynyard Hall which accounted for £4.8m of the total turnover, a rise of £900,000 at that venue in a year.

The year saw the arrival of the Walled Garden at Wynyard Hall, which opened to much fanfare in the summer. Meanwhile, last year’s operating loss of £351,000 was converted to a profit of £821,000 and the company chalked up total comprehensive income of £776,000, compared to the previous year’s loss of £245,000. Headcount also rose, from an average of 142 members of staff to 177, with its conference and banqueting numbers rising by 32 employees to 160.

Private Eye's Piloti's [Gavin Stamp] take on the Woolsington Hall developments.

Ordinarily this would be too 'big' to post as a review/extract but Private Eye doesn t really have an online presence where this can be linked and read. It's sufficiently amusingly radioactive [and on the money] that I've posted



From Private Eye. Extract for review. On my photobucket

Also in 'hotels' and 'at risk'

On the matter of the cause of the fire, I would have thought the insurance company which paid out £1.6m would have fully investigated how the blaze had arisen. After all we all know that insurance firms will do everything they can to wriggle out of a pay out, especially given the amounts involved in this case. Anyway, just my musing.

Of course there could be no connection with the owners, who have expressed their devastation at this unfortunate event.

I wonder if perhaps insurers might ponder a 'naughty tramp' exclusion in policies for the region at some time in the future.

Parenthetically an old friend, who's a well known insurance broker tells a tale of a well known building he was asked to insure. It was scheduled for conversion. He noticed that the floors were spaced at well under the customary gap [I think around 6ft6]. He declined the business and not long afterwards the area was disturbed by many fire engines. Old buildings and tramps eh'...

The item does raise some serious concerns about NCC and their relationship with the developer....

Plans for £23m Woolsington Hall hotel to be considered again after site gutted by fire

Plans for £23m Woolsington Hall hotel to be considered again after site gutted by fire
30 Oct 2016 By Hannah Graham


Woolsington Hall in Newcastle

Plans for a £23m luxury development of fire-gutted Woolsington Hall look likely to go ahead.

Planning officers have recommended that the council committee approve renewed plans to convert Woolsington Hall into a five star hotel, complete with golf course, spa and banqueting venue, when they are put before them next week.

Following the fire, emergency planning permission was given, allowing owners Cameron Hall Developments to restore the building, including the roof, floor layouts, staircase, landing windows and basement.

The planning committee at Newcastle City Council now has to re-consider the application, in order to assess whether the £1.6m insurance payout and the damage done to the hall significantly alters the costs to the company and, therefore, whether permission for the enabling development should still be given. There are also minor changes to the plans, to cover work on the inside of the hall made necessary by the fire, which have to be approved.

According to the documents to be considered by planners on Tuesday, the fire made “no material difference” to the cost of the plans, or the argument for the new homes. The report said: “The insurance money will be used to bring the property back to where it was physically before the fire at the end of 2015. The report suggests that any savings on the scheme from spending insurance money rather than enabling money is inconsequential against the size of the overall project and will certainly not be in excess of the predicted conservation deficit. A financial gap still exists within the project which will need to be met by the applicant.”The exact costs of the development will be discussed by the council, but are kept confidential from the public. Planners were satisfied the luxurious refurbishment would provide “substantial public benefit”, and that it could not be paid for without the housing scheme to offset costs.

Well it wasn't the last time that the then Secretary of State was asked to call it in, so cannot see Sajid Javid changing that decision, but never say never

Perhaps the article in Private Eye swayed the balance. Is there any way of discovering who were the thirteen councillors on yesterday's Planning Committee?

Piloti, Private Eye's architectural heritage correspondent writes about the Woolsington Hall planning decision in yesterday's edition (PE1432). It's probably best to quote his comments in full.

'IT is no surprise Newcastle city council has voted to develop the grounds of arson-attacked Woolsington Hall with a golf club, golf course and 72 houses on greenbelt land (Eye 1430) - nor that secretary of state Sajid Javid has declined to call in this scandalous case.
"The government... believes planning decisions should be made at the local level wherever possible" his communities minion writes. But what if the the local authority is philistine, irresponsible, blinkered and in the pocket of commercial interests?'
