Flats plan for historic railway yard stalls as building given listed status

Plans to transform a former railway yard into flats put forward more than 18 months ago have stalled after the building was given listed status.

Developer Promanco wants to transform The Railway Yard in Worcester into 50 apartments.

The 19th Century building was listed by Historic England in October last year, eight months after the planning application was submitted.

The developer has said it is now considering how to respond to the building’s recent grade II listing.

Julia Day, from Inchbald Day Planning which represents Promanco, said: “Following the statutory listing to a grade II listed building by Historic England of the Old Railway Yard in Midland Road, Worcester, the developer is considering how to respond.

“The applicant Promanco looks forward to working with the city council to help deliver this exciting innovative development which will bring much-needed flats to the city.”
