Allerton Manor hotel project gets planning approval

UK: Allerton Manor near Liverpool has been given planning approval for a boutique hotel development.

The project, projected to cost £15m, will transform the Grade II listed property into a 31-bedroom hotel.

Currently listed as “at risk,” the property is under the ownership of the city of Liverpool. It is operated by Green Circle, who intend to fund the plan through private investment.

Craig Coley, property director for Green Circle, said: “We are delighted that the Planning Committee has agreed our plans and that they have been welcomed enthusiastically by members from all parties. I’d like to thank the professional and supportive approach we have had from the planners and the constructive dialogue with local ward councillors. By working together, we have been able to bring forward an exciting plan that will create a fantastic amenity for the city, whilst preserving Allerton Manor’s unique heritage and landscape.”

The hotel proposal was initially introduced in 2019, as an attempt to save the property from further dilapidation. Green Circle’s proposal emphasized the golf course, as well as the house’s potential as a family destination.

The manor currently sits on the edge of a golf course and was destroyed by fires in 1944 before becoming a listed building in 1975. Updates will add spa facilities, a golf-pavilion and clubhouse, and will involve a reconfiguration of existing golf facilities.
