The London and Cirencester offices secured Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent this week for The Ivy Group to convert a former Lloyds Bank branch at Montpellier Walk, Cheltenham to a Class A3 restaurant with outdoor seating area.
Originally built in the early 1800s, the Grade I listed Rotunda Building is one of the most recognisable and important buildings in Cheltenham with its dome inspired by The Pantheon in Rome. The conversion will see the restoration of the interior of the building and most significantly, the opening up of the ‘long room’ which is currently partitioned into offices.
After extensive negotiations with Historic England and Cheltenham Borough Council Conservation Officers, it was agreed that a new circular bar and servery will be located in the centre of the Rotunda and act as the focal point of the new restaurant.
For further information on this project, please contact Jim Tarzey (Executive Planning Director) or Peter Atkin (Principal Planner) in our London office and Alex Robinson (Associate Heritage Planner) in our Cirencester office.
