The proposed site is a three-storey commercial property that had remained vacant since late 2020.
Architectural designed features
At first floor, the former retail accommodation will be converted into two 1 bedroom flats.
A commercial Kitchen, store, plant, male and female toilets in will be constructed to the rear of the property at first floor in association with the restaurant space at ground floor.
At second floor, the former retail ancillary accommodation shall be converted to provide two 1 bedroom flats.
The plans also include accommodation over the first floor kitchen extension to provide a two bedroom flat.

It would in fact contribute to the vitality and viability of the town centre with the occupation of the ground and part first floor for restaurant use to be occupied by a award winning National Restaurant chain with 190 outlets.
DMP are pleased to have now awarded the contract to a main contractor with works due to commence in mid February 2022. With first phase comprising of the commercial demise to be handed over to the pre-let National restaurant chain in mid Summer 2022 and handover of the flats in Autumn 2022.
