E & F Turnbull Ltd

Out of curiosity what sort of business were E F Turnbull, I know they were a fairly recent occupant of the building 1960s I believe and that the building was originally Robinsons paper mill. But I cant find any information on E F Turnbull.
The forum index is a great resource - http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1159925

Turnbull's has been discussed before, worth checking out these links.

Went for a look at these apartments on Westgate Road (the Big Lamp) a few weeks ago and thought the extension and especially the windows look terrible. No intention to make the window treatments (no lintels?) fit in with the Georgian original windows.

Bodge job judging by the materials used. It looks a lot different in considered photographs. They've been struggling with the wall against the pavement. Old brick with stone copes combo. They bodged that too. The painters were on the little railing this morning. 'That paint's holding it together!' 'Yes', they replied ...

1-9 Falconar Street And 87 Clayton Street

From the Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/north-east-news/newcastle-city-centre-could-set-8677411
Newcastle City Centre could be set for yet another new hotel
06:30, 20 February 2015 By Keiran Southern


Number 87 Clayton Street, the closed down Al-Rashid Grill in Newcastle Upon Tyne

A hotel could be built in an historic quarter of Newcastle City Centre - despite objections from conservationists.

Developers are seeking permission for a part-conversion and part new-build project of 15 residential apartments and 16 Aparthotel studios. The building is unlisted but is attached to the Grade II listed 87 Clayton Street.

Part of Tyneside’s past is also connected to the property - the original home of the Newcastle Daily Journal. It joins onto a warehouse that housed the paper from its first print in 1870.

NCAP, the Newcastle Conservation Advisory Panel, is against the granting of a change of use of the warehouse from Class B8 to Class C1 for the aparthotels, as well as changing to Class C3 for the apartments. NCAP is an advisory panel of representatives from amenity, professional and community bodies, who provide advice to the council on planning applications affecting listed buildings.

Jules Brown, co-ordinator of NCAP, argued the building should be considered listed because of its connection with 87 Clayton Street. He said: “The warehouse to the South East is to be extensively altered and extended upwards by two floors, involving the removal of the two parallel pitched roofs and their replacement by a flat roof extension. The proposals largely ignore the existing building’s character, in a bland, indiscriminate and meaningless treatment of the exterior of the converted building. This particularly applies to the large warehouse building to the south of the site with the more considered historic elevations and roof form. The heritage statement is very weak and gives no argued case for the works from a historic environment point of view. It does not give a full historic assessment of the building or a statement of significance using English Heritage standards. There is no analysis of historic fabric or an assessment of the impact the site makes to the character and appearance of the conservation area. There is no assessment of the impact of the existing or proposed building on the setting of the listed Old Assembly Rooms opposite.”

https://publicaccessapplications.newcastle.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=NKGZIDBSHW500

From the Design & Access Statement:

Amount of Development.

This proposal is for refurbishing a grade II listed building and conversion of the ground, first, second, third and attic floors in to apartments. The conversion to apartments was granted planning and Listed Building approval in 1992. Ref: 1992/0349/01/UDC. This application has expired.

The historical characteristic’s of the building will be considered and retained where possible. The ground floor is used as part of the adjacent Sabatini’s restaurant. Sabatini’s Restaurant occupies the two storey building next door and shares a common front access door. This door will form the access to the restaurant and the proposed apartments.

The ground floor restaurant use in 25 King Street will be discontinued and converted into an apartment. The upper floors of 25 King Street have been used as offices but have been vacant for many years. The upper floors have fallen into disrepair and are in need of urgent repairs to avoid the building deteriorating further.

Went for a look at these apartments on Westgate Road (the Big Lamp) a few weeks ago and thought the extension and especially the windows look terrible. No intention to make the window treatments (no lintels?) fit in with the Georgian original windows.
I'm appalled at how that was even approved. Did they seriously think it was acceptable to slap a huge great grey box on the side? Sometimes the planning office confuses me, refusing perfectly acceptable applications, but then approving cheap crap like this.

@Act94, the grey section isn't a new building, it was a red brick (1950's I think) extension with some very ugly pipework. With this scheme, the have inserted new windows and such. However, I do agree that the grey is incongruous and I think they should have put a pitched roof on to match existing.

Former Anglo-Swedish Engineering Limited Glasshouse Street

I passed this site on the 13th October 2011 and got these shots:





I see that a Planning Application has been submitted again for this development.

2012/0036/01/DET | Erection of 9 town houses (Class C3) | Former Anglo-Swedish Engineering Limited Glasshouse Street Newcastle upon Tyne NE6 1BT

http://publicaccess.newcastle.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=LWK729BSAP000

Some renders - courtesy of Sadler Brown Architecture





The proposal outlined here is for development of the site as residential accommodation. This accommodation would take the form of large townhouses with outdoor landscaped space and gardens. It is hoped that provision of this type of accommodation would attract families and permanent owner-occupiers bringing additional stability to this developing residential neighbourhood. It is also hoped that a residential use on this site would be more conducive to the adjacent residential area than current industrial use.
Paid a visit to Glasshouse Street this morning and the former Anglo Swedish buildings are no more - these images taken 23rd April 2015:

Image courtesy of eriss Survey & Design Studios and taken from the Design and Access Statement:


The property is located to the east side of Dean Street within the central conservation area of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It currently provides general storage within the basement, retail space at ground floor level, and office accommodation to the first, second and third floors. The ground floor retail space is currently occupied by a hairdressers, while the office accommodation at first, second and third floor is unoccupied and has been for some time.

This building is listed under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 as amended for its special architectural or historic interest. It was first listed 29th June 1976, entry nr 1024888 Grade II. Listing National Grid Reference NY 25065 64077. The listing is recorded thus: “Shop and house. Circa 1784; remodelled 1902 by Benjamin Simpson. Sandstone ashlar ground floor; painted brick above with painted ashlar dressings and quoins; Welsh slate roof with stone gable copings. Art Nouveau shop. 3 storeys and attic, 2 bays. Door at left and wide window at right in 3 fat Ionic half-columns with exaggerated entasis; wood mullions and transoms to segmentalheaded window. Plain sashes above in architraves, bracketed on second floor. Eaves band and gutter cornice. Mansard roof has wide pedimented dormer and ashlar-corniced brick chimneys.”

The proposed works aim to ensure the continued use of a building of historical significance in bringing unused commercial office accommodation (use class B1) back into use as residential accommodation (use class Cs(a)). As the building is of historical significance, careful consideration has been given to the scheme to ensure existing features are retained.
The works are set out in the attached drawings and essentially involve conversion of the upper three floors of the property and the currently unused loft space, to form 4 studio apartments across the first and second floor, and a two bedroom flat within the upper two floors of the property.

The building currently provides retail accommodation at ground floor level, and office accommodation at first, second and third floor.
While the ground floor will remain untouched, the proposal seeks to change the use of the upper three floors from Class B1, office accommodation, to Class C3(a) residential accommodation.

The basement and ground floor largely remain unchanged although a new bin store is provided to the rear of the ground floor. At first and second floor, office accommodation will become 4 studio apartments, two on each floor. Each studio will have a large living space which will accommodate a kitchen, sleeping and living space in addition to separate shower room. The third floor and converted loft space will accommodate a two bedroom flat which will include two bedrooms, a shower room, and a combined kitchen/living room.

Took a walk round there today.
I understood the building on the left, higher up Westgate Hill is going to be a private residence. The buildings on the right and the grey rendered addition is a YHN development. Very canny living in there. Minutes from the town and a view out the back onto Summerhill Park. Even better if you're on full HB.
Round the corner are some council houses on Summerhill Street. The council changed the windows to uPVC but had to remove them and replace with wooden frames as it is an alleged 'Conservation Area'!

That's interesting about the use, great to have a mix.

With regards to the windows, yeah I would like to think they're wooden. But, I still hate the opening as it looks wrong; especially in the above photo. What I'd prefer completely is a wooden sash, with double glazed, single panes of glass. Not what appears to be 1 sheet of glass with fake glazing bars that look like beading.

Westgate Hill

One of the old motorbike shops near the Big Lamp is still empty and doesn't appear that the house behind is inhabited.

'Mr Rahan's' further down the hill at no. 190 is deterioating badly.

Those properties could really do with bring back into residential use.

Nothing alleged about it. It is a proper conservation area - The Summerhill CA.

Yes, I did know that but 'alleged' was being ironic.
There are houses round there with double glazed doors, paths with floor/bathroom tiles, red painted front brickwork, pebble dash render. In addition a number are in a very delapidated state with one looking as though it's suffering from subsidence. Finally, some with very poor quality front fences and a gate pained purple!
All in all not in keeping at all with an alleged conservation area. How is this allowed by NCC?
Do you have a professional interest?

No professional interest anymore. Used to work in the Urban Design & Conservation Team at NCC.

I know what you mean about some of the area. But you should have seen what it was like years ago :nuts:

Can't answer your query re the state of the place today as I left a number of years ago and things/people have changed so much.
