PLANS to convert a school building dating back to 1232 into offices have been tabled.

Leaden Hall, at 70 The Close, could have its use changed from education to offices and meeting rooms after an application was submitted to Wiltshire Council on Friday, January 26.

The applicant wants to demolish the conservatory, build single-storey extensions and carry out repairs and internal changes which would include adding a lift.

They are also seeking permission to change the use of Stephenson Hall from education to mixed-use to allow the building to be used for meetings and performances.

The developer wants to build an archive building for the Salisbury Cathedral on the site.

Salisbury Journal: Leaden Hall has been disused and derelict since it closed as a school in 2016.

Solar panels, a ground source heat pump, electric vehicle charging points and bicycle parking would also be built.

The Grade I listed building was last occupied almost eight years ago.

Leaden Hall School, an independent establishment for girls with a capacity of 246, closed for good on July 5, 2016, when it was succeeded by Salisbury Cathedral School.

Historian Frogg Moody previously reported the building existed in 1232, possibly as a home for the man who designed the plans for Salisbury Cathedral.
