Planning Permission secured to transform redundant site into new offices for Derby’s oldest charity.
Situated in Alice Street, Derby and part of the Nottingham Road Conservation Area, the project will see the existing buildings transformed into modern offices and workshops with courtyard parking.
The Liversage Trust established in 1529 is an Almhouses Charity offering accommodation and care for Derby residents in need. It has a varied, well managed, professional property portfolio comprising 160 Almhouses, a 40 bed care home and a variety of commercial units and residential properties across the city.
This isn’t the first time the name Montague and Architects have been linked to the charity; in fact; it is a relationship that spans many years.
Paul McLocklin, consultant architect with Matthew Montague Architects who has worked with the trust for over 40 years said “the trust has a varied portfolio that we have assisted them to manage, refurbish and restore. The works on Alice Street will enhance the future viability and prosperity of the conservation area and strengthen the trust’s portfolio, the offices will add great operational benefit to the Trust, we are looking forward to getting the project underway. “
Andy Mellors, general manager of The Liversage Trust said “every day we are seeing the effects of the cost of living crisis, investing in stock and property allows us to keep the heritage and The Trust alive moving into the 21st Century.
