Planning Application for the development and restoration of Firbeck Hall

The Friends group is pleased to announce that a detailed planning application has recently been submitted to RMBC.  The scheme was submitted and validated at the end of June, and represents a significant milestone in the recent history of Firbeck Hall, being the first official submission to the local authority for a future use of the Hall and grounds in the approximate 27 years that have passed since the Rehabilitation Centre closed. The plans that have been put forward appear to be very similar to the scheme that was proposed at the public consultation event that was held in Firbeck in October 2016.  We are aware that the scheme will now be carefully considered by RMBC and the local community and a process of consultation and review has begun.  A public meeting hosted by the Parish Council will take place in Firbeck Village Hall in the evening on Friday 7th July, and public comments are now invited on the application online.

The Friends group has adopted a supportive stance in encouraging the owners and local authority to work together to develop a viable future for the site which would see Firbeck Hall restored, occupied and in regular use and we are delighted that this stage has now been reached.  We look forward to bringing more detail to our members as the process moves forward.


Friends of Firbeck Hall

FoFH is a voluntary group dedicated to encouraging the sympathetic restoration of this beautiful 16th Century building, located in the village of Firbeck in South Yorkshire.

We are delighted that we now have over 500 members who have pledged support for our organisation and our membership and newsletter circulation continues to grow steadily.

Firbeck Hall has a tremendous history of which only a tiny proportion is detailed on this site. The group is steadily acquiring more knowledge about the history of the people who lived at the Hall and the local community which we frequently publish.

The Friends group produces a newsletter 3 times a year detailing progress with the current development initiative and publishing articles of historical and social interest.
