Lanpro secured planning permission to convert and vertically extend the redundant former office building known as Westlegate House to form 11 no. flatted dwelling units. The existing class A3 restaurant use at ground floor level within Westlegate House was retained under the approved scheme and now contains an A1 retail use.
The approved scheme also involved the demolition of listed structures at the rear of 20 Westlegate and the physical extension of this building to form a new retail space.
Under the proposals planning permission was also granted for an A1 retail unit and 3 no. flatted dwellings along Timber Hill and 2 no. 3-storey town houses in the former car park known as Lion and Castle Yard.
