The Golden Cross dates back to Victorian times

A city centre pub is set to offer accommodation once more.


Nine flats could be added above The Golden Cross Hotel on Lancaster Road.

Owners TTS Real Estates Limited have submitted plan for the first, second and attic of the grade-II listed pub to be converted.

A statement from MCK Associates to the council states: “The Golden Cross Hotel is a Grade II listed building and is located within the eastern boundary of the Market Place Conservation Area.

“The existing property is currently in use as a Public House, (basement and ground floors) with the upper floors being partially occupied by the manager of the establishment.

“The upper floors of the property are currently under used, the structure of the building is sound, but the internal areas are in need of refurbishment.”

The Golden Cross was built in approximately 1860.

TTS state the pub will continue to operate as usual.

There will be eight one-bedroomed flats and one two-bedroom flat if the plans are approved.

A heritage report submitted with the application says: “The conversion of the original building will retain and sustain the character, visual amenity and significance of the original building and its setting.”

The full plans are available to view on the council website.

Comments on the application can be made on the council website or email and quote reference number 06/2013/0752 by Friday 22 November.
