A 100-year-old hall in Weston-super-Mare is in need of urgent repair as its facade has badly corroded.

The owners of the Waterloo Gospel Hall, in Waterloo Street, have applied to North Somerset Council for permission to remove parts of the crumbling sandstone.

The stone has become so badly corroded, parts of it are falling away.

The works would remove the corroded sections and replace them with material to match the rest of the building.

It is an ecclesiastical gospel hall, and approximately 100 years old.

To carry out the work, builders would need to temporarily move the bus stop, and cover it in scaffolding.

Photos included with the planning application show the extensive damage is on both sides of the entrance.

The hall is not a listed building.

To see the full application, search for 18/P/3208/FUL on North Somerset’s planning portal.
