By way of a letter dated 14th November 2019 Lichfield District Council approved revised plans in respect of the change of use permitted the existing building under Prior Notification Ref 18/0051/PND to provide 10 number apartments. We understand that this in conjunction with planning permission Ref 18/01598/FULM for ‘Demolition of existing building (part) and erection of two side extensions and creation of a second floor to form 12 no residential units with alterations to the façade and all associated works’ means that the overall combined scheme for conversion and development now provides for 22 units in total and not 24 units as stated in the catalogue.
A Copy of Lichfield District Council’s letter of the 14th November 2019 and the plans referred to therein are available for inspection in the legal pack.
