A planning application for the Boldon United Reformed Church at 53 Front Street, East Boldon, in the Cleadon and East Boldon area, has been submitted to the planning department of South Tyneside Council.

According to planning documents submitted with the application, the building – built in the Victorian Gothic Revival style – dates back to around 1876 and underwent further extension in the 1970s, but is now vacant.

According to new plans, the church could be converted into a fitness studio which the candidates say would lend itself to the open layout of the building.

There are plans to create a fitness studio using the former Boldon United Reformed Church building. Image c/o Google Streetview.

A design and access statement submitted to council confirms that no additional floor space or extensions will be created.

The applicants also stated that the new fitness studio “would provide level access, internal circulation and accommodation for users with disabilities”.

The design and access statement adds: ‘The site is ideally located on the main street of East Boldon, with the building accessible to both residents and those in the more remote surroundings. [and] the building is located on a public transport route.

“Although there is no existing parking on the site, the use of the existing church has not previously created traffic problems and there is more than adequate street parking and parking behind the public house and auction rooms to accommodate the newly proposed fitness center. ”

The suggested opening hours for the use of the fitness studio are 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12pm on Saturday.

The old church is within the East Boldon Conservation Area.

Previous council documents detail the building as being of coarse limestone with sandstone dressings, with an old red brick church hall dating from around 1863.

He lists the two as “neo-Gothic buildings typical of their era and, though modest, make bold contributions to the street scene worthy of their use and importance.”

The authors are less complimentary of the ‘square 1970s extension to the church’, however noting that it is ‘a poor addition in form, materials and location, with its elevations dull and empty.

A decision on the fitness studio development application will be made following a public consultation period.

There is controversy surrounding the demolition of an unfinished church at Kaduna State University (KASU) which the Kaduna State Urban Development Agency (KASUPDA) has called illegal .

According to Daily Trust, the unfinished structure that served as a worship center for university staff and students was demolished by KASUPDA on Monday afternoon.

Dr. Ishaya Kato Auta, leader of the KASU Christian community, who said he was out of town when the demolition took place, noted that KASUPDA had not issued any notice informing them of the illegality of the demolition. structure.

He said, “We have not received any ‘stop work’ notices on the KASUPDA structure. I do not know if KASUPDA had written to the school management regarding the structure, but as far as I am concerned, I have not received any communication from KASUPDA”, adding that he had urged the Christian community to remain calm during that the school administration was dealing with the problem.

When contacted, KASU spokesman Adamu Bargo confirmed that the structure was removed because due process was not followed during construction.

Bargo said the land was awarded to the Christian community by the school management under a previous board, adding that the board is committing the state government to the way forward.

However, in his reaction, KASUPDA Managing Director, Malam Ismail Umaru Dikko, said the structure violates relevant laws, adding that the State Executive Council had previously issued a clear directive that owners of all Public buildings and institutions must submit relevant documents before erecting new structures.

Dikko said in a statement that KASU partially complied with the SEC directive by submitting its master plan but did not seek approval for further development.

He said as a courtesy he visited the site twice and told the engineers the building was breaking the law and asked the contractors to stop work until they got a permit.

The general manager said that the developers went ahead with the project on Monday, and because of this, KASUPDA removed the project from its foundation.

He said KASUPDA had no idea whether the proposed structure would have been a church or any other building, but pointed out that the developers had broken the law and for this reason KASUPDA had fulfilled its legal obligation by removing it.

Chesapeake police are investigating a shooting Tuesday afternoon in Lake Ahoy Shoppes that damaged a daycare center and a church.

Gunfire shattered the windows of the Small Voices’ Academy and the Grace Worship Center on Airline Boulevard, police say. The daycare and the church are side by side.

There were 10 children and four staff members at the back of the Small Voices building at the time of the shots, and the church was unoccupied, a police spokesman confirmed on Wednesday.

There was an initial report of injuries at the scene, but police were unable to locate anyone injured in the incident on Wednesday afternoon.

It is not known how many shots were fired.

A person who only identified himself as a Grace Worship Center pastor responded to a reporter’s request via the church’s Facebook page to say no one was injured on either other of the two sites.

“We don’t know any information about the incident and why it happened. No one was injured in the two affected buildings,” the person wrote. “But what we do know is that it is time to pray for our nation!”

Investigators do not believe the daycare center or the church were the targets of the shooting. A police spokesman said they had no information on who fired the shots, but were looking for surveillance footage of the incident.

The spokesperson could not confirm whether it was a drive-by shooting.

Attempts to reach Small Voices were unsuccessful Wednesday morning.

ROCHESTER — A request to remove the First Unitarian Universalist Church from a list of potential city landmarks will go to a public hearing on Tuesday.

The City’s Heritage Preservation Commission will hear the reasons for the requested change in status for the building at 1727 Walden Lane SW at its regular meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the Council Chambers of the City Government Center.

The 1966 building was designed by nationally renowned architect Victor Christ-Janer, who contributed to the modernist movement.

His participation in the construction, as well as the unique use of masonry tiles on the exterior walls, are cited as potential reasons for listing the building as a landmark, which comes with additional monitoring by the city of potential changes to the exterior of a building.

However, Church President Ann Hutton said in a letter to the commission that a million-dollar renovation in 1999 had already changed the exterior of the building. She also pointed out that part of Christ-Janer’s planned design was altered during the original construction due to rock in the subsoil of the site.

She said the congregation would like some flexibility as they consider a potential move or additional renovations to meet the needs of the church.

“Our congregation has not yet chosen to remain on this property, but a rigorous process of discernment has been underway since 2018 in conjunction with the Unitarian Universalist Association and local architects,” she wrote, adding that a congregational vote is expected this year.

Molly Patterson-Lungren, the city’s heritage preservation and urban design coordinator, recommends that the church remain on the city’s list of potential landmarks to allow for further study of potential historic significance. of the building.

The commission will be asked to make a decision on the status after Tuesday’s public hearing, with the option of deciding that the building does not warrant landmark designation.

Meetings scheduled for the week of May 23 include:

Rochester

  • City Council Special Learning Session, 3:30 p.m. Monday in Mayo Civic Center Suite 102, 30 Civic Center Drive SE.
  • Heritage Preservation Commission, Tuesday at 5 p.m. in the boardroom of the Government Center, 151 Fourth St. SE.
  • Outside the agency’s Oversight Committee, Wednesday at 2 p.m. in Room 104 at City Hall.
  • Police Public Service Commission, Thursday at 3 p.m. in Room 164B of the Center for Development and Infrastructure Services.
