Aparthotel plotted for former Warrington bank

Dan Whelan

Hotel developer YP Group wants to covert the 9,500 sq ft former Parr’s Bank on Winwick Street into a 16-bedroom hotel. 

Under the plans, most of the ground floor of the grade two-listed building would be converted to create a reception, guests’ lounge and lobby. 

A portion of the space would be retained for an alternative future use that has yet to be determined. 

The hotel rooms would be located on the first and second floors of the three-storey building. 

Built in 1877, the bank was last occupied by NatWest, which vacated the property in 2015. 

The building, located opposite Warrington bus station, has been vacant since and is in a state of disrepair, according to Knutsford-based planning consultant Walsingham Town planning. 

YP Group is run by directors Yaadwinder Singh Johal and Pavan Johal.

Warrington should have joined up with the liverpool city region when it had the chance. Now it is just a forgotten town of east cheshire. Neither here nor there.

Warrington isn’t in east Cheshire. It’s a separate unitary authority and borough in the ceremonial county of Cheshire.

It seems to do rather well on its own, at the crossroads between Manchester, Liverpool and Cheshire, with it strong and mixed employment bases.

Warrington’s local economy is very strong. We’re much better off out of a stagnating Liverpool City Region.

Why would Warrington want to join the LCR for? The majority outside of the city of Liverpool want out.

Warrington would do even better if we embraced more of our history and heritage. We have the Sankey Canal, Britain’s oldest true canal of the industrial age, but it’s cut in two at Great Sankey. We would do well to follow Liverpool as we reinvent the town centre. Bring Warrington back to the Mersey and make Bridge Street a vibrant link to our waterways.

Great scheme. Should be fully supported

Could be promoted to bus and train spotters, in that location.
