A former plumbing supply warehouse on Hartford Way is to be converted into a studio and event space.

The site is located in the industrial area of ​​Sealand. It houses a 9,400 square foot warehouse, unused for a few years.

Applicant Adhoc Worldwide, advised by Pinnacle Planning, submitted a change of use request in April of this year for the site. Last week, this request was approved by the Cheshire West & Chester Council.

The project includes the conversion of the warehouse’s existing office space into four recording rooms, two rehearsal rooms and an office

Side events could accommodate two events per week for up to 100 people each, largely related to promoting the recording space through live music – the nearest houses are 500 meters away – although it is also hoped that art exhibitions and fashion shows would be organized.

Pinnacle’s planning statement said, “The studios vision is to create a state-of-the-art facility that rivals anything in the Northwest.

“There is nothing like this in the Chester area, and he would be available to encourage people of all ages and abilities to develop their music production skills. It is also proposed to offer in-depth courses in production, as well as instrumental practice rooms for rent.

Adhoc is based in Chester. Also on the professional tram are Egg Transport Planning and civil engineer SJM Solutions.
