Empty Cockermouth brewery building may become flats

Plans to create 16 new apartments next to the Jennings Brewery site in Cockermouth have been revealed.

Marston’s, which owns Jennings, has applied to Allerdale council to convert the Grade II listed Maltings building on Brewery Lane.

It was formerly used for brewery production, storage and offices but has stood empty since before the 2009 floods.

The company said that it has to be used for something before it deteriorates.

Marston’s has applied for permission to create 10 two-bedroom apartments and six three-bedroom apartments.

A building next to the Maltings, once used as a bottling plant, will be demolished to create 22 parking spaces, surrounded by a wall being built as part of the town’s flood defences.

The ground floor will be used as a storage area and include a lift as well as a cycle park.
