New Plans for Holt Tannery Site

The site owners, J&T Beaven, are formulating a new regeneration proposal for the Tannery Site in partnership with the Glove Factory Studios and a new housing development partner, HAB Housing. This follows the expiry of a 5-year option with a previous land promoter, and the subsequent withdrawal of the 2016 outline planning application.
The new draft scheme for the site comprises: the comprehensive restoration of the existing heritage buildings (for offices, workshops and flexible multi-use space) which will be managed by the Glove Factory Studios; and circa 43 new homes with on-site car parking. A full planning application is being targeted for submission by the end of the year, with the aim of starting the development in Autumn 2018.
J&T Beaven, the Glove Factory Studios, and HAB Housing will be presenting their draft proposals to the community at an open ‘drop-in’ event that will take place onsite at the Tannery from 3:30pm to 7:30pm on Tuesday 17th October. Please do come along to see the potential of these beautiful existing buildings and to give your feedback.
