An application to demolish these existing buildings to be redeveloped into seven residential units has been approved - Credit: Google Maps

What: This application is to demolish the existing buildings to erect a part four, part five-storey building for seven new flats and office space.

When: Application approved with conditions and legal agreement - May 19

Reference: P2021/3215/FUL

That refusal related to the use of an exposed pre-cast concrete frame which was deemed inappropriate, which the applicant has altered for this proposal.
