Tarvin Hall April 2017

At the Parish Council meeting on Monday, March27th, the attention of the Council was drawn to the possibility that the newly renovated Tarvin Hall was completing work on the imposing gateway with a view to using this as a vehicular access. The letter expressed concern at the potential proximity of moving cars, the bus stop queue and customers of the nearby shops. Though the matter is one for Planning and Highways to deal with, the Parish Council agreed to write to CW&C for clarification.

The Clerk has stressed to Tarvin Online that the Parish Council has received no formal notification of this change. However, discussions within the village would indicate that the new owners do intend to use the imposing gateway as a principal entrance. It has been suggested that, while the conditions imposed on the Hall when it was a nursing home required that all vehicles use the entrance from Hockenhull Crescent, no such condition was imposed when Tarvin Hall returned to private ownership. It would appear however, that the access will be used only by the residents of the main house, while the residents of the other four properties will continue to use the rear entrance.

Tarvin Hall is an imposing building and a major architectural feature of the High Street. Many will have been delighted to see work carried out to bring it back into residential use. If the proposed access occurs then the change will take a little bit of getting used to, but with care, the impact should be minimal.
