The planning permission will pave the way to provide two new units of self-contained residential accommodation (Use Class C3) comprising one 1-bed and one 2-bed flat. 


Brett Moore’s Head of Planning at SHW, says: “Our team boasts an excellent track record of securing planning permissions for the change of use of redundant and under-used commercial buildings right across the Use Class Order. Should you require help unlocking the redevelopment potential of any commercial property that you may have an interest in, please contact us.”
