New plans to convert former Stalybridge pub into homes

Tameside Council planners are considering proposals for the change of use of a former public house into residential accommodation.

A new plan has been submitted to convert the Travellers Call Public House into six dwelling houses to provide affordable accommodation. 

The property is described as no longer commercially viable and is boarded up.

An application made to the council to convert the former pub into eight, two bedroom apartments was rejected in April last year when planning chiefs considered the idea ‘incongruous’. 

That plan however included building an additional storey to the structure, but it was considered out of keeping. Concerns over car parking were also raised.

The new plans would create six homes within the existing building plot with car parking provided.

The pub has been vacant and was last used in 2019.

Applicants say a Victorian Blue plaque will be maintained in position on the building, located at 26 Wakefield Road, Stalybridge.

The plaque located at the site pays tribute to John Buckley VC, who was born in May 1813 at Cocker Hill in Stalybridge. 

He was awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry in Delhi during the Indian Uprising of 1857.

The plans are under consideration.
