206 Elliott Street - Before and After
206 Elliott Street
206 Elliott Street was formally a newsagent at ground floor with the current owner using the upper floors as office accommodation. The owner had obtained planning consent in 2020 to convert the upper floor into residential accommodation and undertake their own refurbishment work internally and externally, including a new shopfront to create a new ground floor office. However, whilst works were progressing onsite, elements of a Victorian shopfront were discovered when the existing signage fascia was removed. The For Tyldesley HAZ team actively engaged with the owners with the objective of encouraging them to retain and sensitively restore these elements, as well as reinstating any missing architectural features. Works were then halted until an alternative scheme could be developed.
The alternative scheme was to repair/reinstate a traditional shopfront and associated structural works. Works also included the creation of a new sash window at first floor, removing damaging paint finishes to brickwork and brick, roof and chimney repairs. The work to 206 will help restore/improve the character and appearance of the property in this part of the Conservation Area and help bring this building back into positive use, whilst protecting historical features that would otherwise be lost. The works finished in June 2022 and the office is due to reopen in June 2023.
