Report prepared by Hall Grey Architects on behalf of Nestle UK in response to a request from the local planning authority following discussions about potential redevelopment of part of the Haxby Road site in York, commonly referred to as the Rowntree’s Cocoa Works. The report was commissioned to establish an understanding of the Haxby Road site, the buildings on the site, adjacent buildings bounding the site, owned or previously owned by Nestle Rowntree and external landscaping which comprise the factory, with a view to assessing and defining the significance of the fabric and location, and to identify key buildings on the site which may have a bearing on the future development of the complex. The report traces the development of the site as an integrated complex and shows how that context has changed during the course of time identifying key buildings, which may have been altered, demolished or remain. Any key buildings remaining are assessed in terms of their architectural and historic significance.
