Thwaite Hall is a former student halls of residence, comprising an original 19th Century building and 1950s extension, extending to 6,609.82 sq m (71,150 sq ft).
Thwaite Gardens lie immediately adjacent and are Grade II listed, extending to around 7.03 ha (17.4 ac).
The site lies within Cottingham Conservation Area, and pre-app advice indicates the original 19th Century building positively contributes to the conservation area and will need to be retained. The 1950s extension is considered less significant, and presents an opportunity for conversion or redevelopment, subject to sympathetic design. The gardens offer limited development potential and will need to be retained in situ.
Offers are invited for the freehold interest of Thwaite Hall, or Thwaite Hall plus Thwaite Gardens, where is can be demonstrated the gardens will provide an amenity use to complement the redevelopment of Thwaite Hall.
