Erection of two storey rear extension to create 2no. retail units (class A1) at ground floor and 2 x 2 bed flats and 1 x 1 bed flat at first and second floors. Formation of 2no balconies to front elevation. Alteration to shop front and 3no. windows to front elevation. Provision of private amenity space, bin and cycle stores.

This proposed development would certainly improve the streetscape and will provide single and young couple living accommodation, which in the area is increasingly scarce and variable in quality. We have one observation concerning the layout of Flat 2 – that there is no door to the bedroom from the living/kitchen space. Sleeping and food preparation areas should be segregated for the comfort of the occupants.
