A rare opportunity to purchase a Grade II listed hall (now in ruins), together with c153.8 acres/c62.2 ha parkland and two lakes, having potential for some form of residential development (on parts) or other uses (STPP).
GREAT BARR HALL ? Brief history
Great Barr Hall is an 18th-century mansion with associations with the Lunar Society and is a Grade II listed building. It is, however, in a very poor state of repair and is on the Buildings at Risk Register.
It is a nine-bay mansion in the Strawberry Hill Gothic Revival style. The house was much altered and extended about 1840 and in 1863 by Sir Francis Scott, 3rd Baronet, After his death in 1863. his widow Mildred lived on in the Hall until her death in 1909.
In 1911, the estate was purchased by a local hospital board. The hospital was closed and in the 1980s the grounds became a nature reserve. The hall itself was abandoned in 1978 and, despite its 1971 Grade II* listing (since revised by English Heritage to Grade II), was left to decay.
A large part of the land is surrounded by established residential development and is bordered by the M6 to the south west.
Exploiting the development potential of the land will require a solution that includes the restoration of Great Barr Hall (or an agreed replacement Statement Building - STPP). It is believed there is potential for some new residential development on parts of the land (STPP) with an appropriate number of dwellings to achieve a viable scheme.
Possible future uses of the restored Hall or replacement building could be care or community with public access to the parkland and lakes for leisure.
Work on the lakes will need to be undertaken as required by the Environment Agency.
Great Barr is located 6 miles to the north west of Birmingham city centre. It as all amenities expected of a very busy residential area with good road and rail connections to West Bromwich, Walsall and Birmingham.
During the 1960s the area received a motorway link when Junction 7 of the newly built M6 motorway was opened on the A34. It is also located close to the starting point of the M5, which can be accessed just one mile northwards on the M6
The land/property has an extensive planning history. Plans were submitted in 2013 for a development of 57 large dwellings on substantial plots on various parts of the lands (extending in areas to a total of c34.5 acres) - see diagram below and by visiting Walsall Council Planning Department - Restoration and alterations to Great Barr Hall Grade ll and Grade ll Registered Park including 57 dwellings - application reference 13/1567/FL, the application has never been determined. However, there has been indications in principle for some form of development to be supported subject to viability and agreed enabling works. There are a significant number of technical reports within the application.
A policy within Walsall Council Allocation Document (SAD) January 2019 (pages 130-140), has further details regarding support for potential development of the lands/property.
Confirmation of an acceptable scale of development has yet to be indicated, we believe it may be possible to achieve a significant number of new dwellings (on parts of the land) together with potential restoration or redevelopment of the Hall (STPP). Walsall Council planners and Historic England are keen to see restoration of the Hall, surrounding land and lakes.
