The Former Chetwynd Centre is a Grade II listed landmark property dating from around 1860-62 with various later remodelling and extension works and comprises a substantial two-storey building of brick and tile construction originally used as a grammar school and then for general education purposes as a college.
The premises were designed to provide a mixture of classroom and cellular office accommodation on the first and second floors in the form of two wings linked by an impressive octagonal assembly hall with access through a ground floor reception area over a substantial area of surface parking.
Planning consent has now been obtained for residential conversion with some new build on part of the rear external area and with an element of leisure also permitted to cover the use of the former assembly hall, which does not, by its nature, immediately lend itself for alteration to provide living accommodation.
