Planning Approval Secured for Audley Village’s Scarcroft Park

Audley Group has announced planning approval has been secured for their site at Scarcroft, West Yorkshire, to be called Scarcroft Park. The scheme for the 110 acre site includes the sympathetic restoration of the dilapidated Grade II listed Scarcroft Lodge, built in 1830, which will be the Audley Club for property owners and the local community to enjoy and the construction of 172 retirement properties and nine residential properties. Scarcroft Cricket Club currently rents a cricket pitch and pavilion on the site and the club will remain in the location as part of the development.

Bernard Interiors are designing and will fit out the interior of Scarcroft Lodge and the apartment communal areas, helping to create a unique environment with the distinctive Audley signature with references to the surrounding locality. Founder and managing director Jen Bernard said: “We are very pleased to be part of the development team for Scarcroft Park. Scarcroft Lodge has the classic clean lines and elegant features of an early Victorian country house, and huge potential. We will be working to create a charming and comfortable interior that is entirely fit for purpose. The interior will boast a restaurant, bar and bistro, health spa with hydrotherapy pool, gym and wellness studios.”

Kevin Shaw, managing director Audley Group said: “Scarcroft Park will be a superb addition to the Audley portfolio, and continues our heritage of restoring beautiful buildings to give them a new lease of life both for Audley owners and the wider community. It also demonstrates our commitment to Yorkshire and we are very pleased to bring the Audley way of life to more people in the local area.”

The development has been designed by Gaunt Francis Architects.
