Firbeck Hall development

Have your say

The owner of Firbeck Hall says that plans for development work at the historic building will be unveiled in the coming months.

In response to questions from the Friends of Firbeck Hall, owner Jason Cooper said that formal plans would be available for the public to view later this year.

He also confirmed that, despite ‘economic challenges’, the planning application for the 16th century building was at an advanced stage and that representatives from the development groups would meet with the Friends of Firbeck to display the facts.

Mr Cooper also confirmed that work on West Lodge will start soon.

“I am meeting the company that I hope will be making the gates to finalise the design and as part of the West Lodge refurbishment, and we shall also tidy up the whole entrance and provide a much more presentable gateway to the village of Firbeck,” said Mr Cooper.

The Friends of Firbeck will hold their next general meeting in the coming weeks.
