Historic Coaching House could be partly demolished to make way for houses

First published in News

Smithills Coaching house could be partially demolished to make way for 29 new homes.

The Grade Two listed building, which is built on greenbelt land, has been sold by its current owners and plans have now been submitted to Bolton Council to turn it into houses.

The Coaching House, which has been run as a restaurant for 46 years, will cease operations on August 27, making its 30 staff members redundant.

Mystery had surrounded the future of the building, which is the former stables of Grade One listed Smithills Hall, but The Bolton News can now reveal its owner’s plans to build houses on the land.

The Emerson Group has submitted the plans on behalf of P.E. Jones Contracts, of Alderly Edge, Cheshire. The proposals are for two apartments and two houses with two bedrooms, 12 three-bedroomed houses and 12 houses with four or more bedrooms for the site, which measures 1.28 hectares. Under the plans, the existing Coaching House will be partially demolished and altered to create eight dwellings.

Another 21 homes, with parking and landscaping, will be created on the surrounding land.

The application states the “vast majority” of the development proposed will be on existing areas of the Coaching House.

Documents associated with the application state: “Despite marketing, there appears to be no viable future for the building as a restaurant use.

“In order to secure the long-term future of the building, this application seeks to obtain planning permission to convert the Coaching House to eight dwellings together with 21 dwellings within the grounds and land associated which are enabling development necessary to fund the renovation of the building.

“This would bring the visual appearance of the building more in line with the original structure (and footprint) and would secure its long term future in a renovated state.”

Ian Greenhalgh, who was chairman of Smithills Hall and Park Trust for several years before the hall was transferred to Bolton Council in 2006, said he was “disgusted” by the proposals.

Mr Greenhalgh, aged 65, of nearby Jesmond Road, added: “I am really annoyed and I think residents will be too. It is greenbelt land and I cannot see how they can build homes on it as that is a total breach of planning regulations.

“Building 29 homes on the land will just ruin the place. It is a wonderful asset to the town and it will be destroyed. I honestly cannot believe it.”

Smithills Coaching House had planning permission to build a hotel 13 years ago.

The plans included a large two-storey extension with 26 bedrooms, as well as renovation of the existing building to add an extra three bedrooms.

Brian Tetlow, chairman of the Civic Trust, said: “Obviously it’s a shock to think there are proposals for a listed building. To propose some demolition and include residential accommodation is quite a shock.

“It’s a historic location and I think the whole application is very inappropriate. “ Cllr Roger Hayes, leader of the Liberal Democrat group and ward councillor, said: “I am very sad to see the Coaching House close. It has been in an institution in Bolton and provided around 30 people with employment.

“Reading the developer’s plans, they are claiming the only way to fund the renovation of the Coaching House is through housing. Smithills is an extremely desirable area to live in. Obviously the builders think so otherwise they would not have submitted the plans. I suspect there will be some opposition because it’s part of the greenbelt land.

Cllr Anthony Radlett, Liberal Democrat for Smithills, added: “I cannot comment on the plans because I am on the planning committee. The Coaching House certainly is an institution and it has been a big part of the Bolton social scene for many years.

“As a Coaching House it obviously has a lot of history and a change of use will be sad but that’s not a predetermination.”

Normally, that's the stance I would take, but it's a kick in the nuts, as this is one of Bolton's major landmarks.

Why not just demolish ALL of Bolton, start again and then it will just be another non-place, like all the new towns that sprung up in the 1970/80's. With a council that doesn't care about heritage, architectural beauty or anything that the voters might wish for, Bolton will continue to slide deeper and deeper into oblivion, until even our friends from overseas will not want to live there.

Born in Bolton, a Smithills goer and lover for over 50 years, I am now saddened and disgusted at what those idiots in the town hall are doing.

The Bolton public has not backed the restaurant and that's why it's closing. However, rather than yet more souless housing, I think this could be turned in to a hotel/leisure complex much like The Last Drop. It's a beautiful area and shouldn't be spoiled by housing.

Development and profit coming before history and heritage yet again. Some parts of the coaching house have existed since the 17th century - I wonder how many of the 'new build' houses they throw up on the site will still be with us in three to four hundred years time? History is important, heritage is important, we need to be able to see how our past has influenced our present, we need some relics of the past existing alongside our new 'developments'. The old and the new together will create interest and help us and future generations to define who we are and where we came from. Let us not sacrifice historical interest for easy profit folks.

This is a crying shame. And as has already been stated, no doubt a certain member of Bolton's nepotistic political fraternity will grease a few wheels to ensure that the planning permission is obtained without a hitch (...and guarantee him his share of the profit.)

The Bolton I grew up in 30 years ago is gone. And it ain't ever coming back. And it's all about money and greed.

We finally got our University after god knows how long trying (Oh whoopdy doo, aren't we sophisticated...?) but what have we lost over the years? Pretty much all of the character and charm that the town once had.

At least it's not being turned into another bloody mosque.

surely you can only optimistically oppose the closure of something thats in public ownership?

the coaching house is nothing to do with the council or government.

its a private business, so whats to be gained from putting effort into creating facebook pages opposing its closure?

nice try mate, but there is no logic or reason to your actions.

Sounds to me that Mr Morris will shuffle the planning permission through, and Emerson group will bung some cash to Mr Morris.

What's your problem binman? Just because it is private, it does not mean that the people should just sit back and watch another part of Bolton's history get destroyed. Any private owner has to obtain special planning permission to extend, alter or build on to an existing property in order that it blends in with existing surroundings. Therefore, it follows that any development on the Coaching House site will also have to reflect the surroundings, meaning 17th century style houses or whatever. Watch and see the modern box-style rubbish that is sprouting up everywhere, all with the blessing of the council. Do they forget that they own nothing, they simply administer on behalf of the real owners, the tax and council tax payers of Bolton. It is about time they listened to the people who pay their (overinflated) wages, and if a website or petition tells them the real feelings of the electorate, they ignore them at their peril come the next elections. Yet I suppose those who voted them in again, will do so in infinitum, as they know no better. Thank goodness I live in a small village, with houses dating back to 1300 and no chance of any council putting the dirty hands on it.

We all can try spitting in the wind rather than change Morris and Co. It is no coincidence that the other half of the Clarke family got planning permission in the greenbelt.Morris and Co have made the name of Labour stink in Bolton. The C.H. should have never been sold to the Clarke family. Plus the fat controller has missed a bit! Why has the garden centre not produced revenue for the last fifteen years? Maybe he's keeping this plot under his y fronts as his retirement package.

Ermmm.... no wiser. So Morris is Director of just two active companies - Marketing Manchester and the Manchester Development agency. So what? I would have expected more, these two are little more than local Quangos. Morris is a pompous oaf who, if people saw him in full flow, would have no more power than being able to sweep up the leaves in Queens park however there is nothing sinister in the list above. Time to move on. Providing the redevelopment is tasteful with no cheap housing polluting it then it will be a very desirable place to live with at least some of the heritage preserved.

Erm because Emerson group have most of the contracts from Bolton council, and who is at the top of the council? Clifford Morris, the director of Smitthills coaching house? Sounds to me that Mr Morris will shuffle the planning permission through, and Emerson group will bung some cash to Mr Morris. Mr Morris cannot be trusted, he is the reason I don’t vote labour. I feel for the 30 staff, I wonder if Mr Morris is helping them through this, I really don’t think so. “Shame on you Cliff” Bolton news, print my comment in your paper?

P.E. Jones is actually part of the Emerson group!!! Nothing new there as Emerson, under PE Jones, actually controls the happenings of Middlebrook Retail and housing!!!!

Why has Councillor Morris been a director for so many companies and often only for 12 months? Add that to many of the companies that have been disolved and you have to wonder what's going on. As a businessman somehing doesn't feel right and questions need to be answered especially when the individual involved is a public servant.
