A CAMPAIGN to preserve the future of The Red House in Chester has had its application approved for the building. It will be listed as an asset of community value.
The Red House, located on Dee Banks, Great Boughton, has overlooked the River Dee since the 1850s. And currently houses Italian restaurant Et Alia.
But back in March we revealed that plans had been lodged with Cheshire West and Chester Council to demolish it and build several apartments on the site.
As a result, Dee Banks resident Kate Cousens, who said the demolition plans came as “a major shock to many.” She launched a community campaign to try and preserve The Red House’s long-term future.
She confirmed on the Let’s Save The Red House Facebook group this morning. The campaign had been successful in getting the building registered as an asset of community value.

Kate added that the aim now was to try and find a business who will run it as a going concern. Establish a community business venture.
The owners of the building have an eight week period to appeal the decision by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
In a response from the local authority’s corporate property asset manager Kathryn Jones, it states:
“The council considers that the actual current use of the asset has community value as defined in the Localism Act 2011. The asset will be placed on the list.
“The owner has the right to request that the council reviews its decision under section 92 of the Act. The deadline for this is set out in paragraph one of Schedule 2 to the Regulations. This is 8 weeks from the date written notice of the listing was given.
