Former real housewife plans to convert into homes within grounds of Warford Hall


A former reality TV star and ex-footballer have submitted plans to convert outbuildings to create six new homes within the grounds of their Great Warford home.

Dawn Ward, former star of The Real Housewives of Cheshire, and her husband Ashley Ward have applied to change the use of existing stables and barns from ancillary office and guest accommodation to create six residential dwellings. The scheme includes a single storey extension to the former stables building and external alterations to a detached Oak framed barn.

The proposed dwellings provide a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bed homes and will share car parking from the existing extensive car parking provision within the site, for which 68 vehicles can be accommodated.

In February 2020 planning permission was granted to change the use of Warford Hall, which lies within the Green Belt, from a private residence with ancillary offices to a spa hotel along with a swimming pool.

The plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East planning portal by searching for planning reference 21/3027M.

Great Warford Residents Group welcome this application as it means that the controversial plan for a Hotel Spa will no longer go ahead.
