Plans approved for new flat in Hartlepool's Church Street
Plans have been approved for a new three-bedroom flat to be created in Church Street as part of the ongoing developments in the area.
Proposals have been given the go-ahead by Hartlepool Borough Council planning department to convert the upper three floors at 74A Church Street.
Submitted by Mr Malik, plans note the first, second and third floors at the site are currently used for storage, but the move will now see it operated as a three bed flat.
Council planning officers have confirmed the application has been fully approved and work can commence.
A heritage statement from ASP Associates on behalf of the applicant states the site will be refurbished as well as having the new three bedroom flat created.
It said: “The proposal is to allow the change of use for the upper floors only, from storage usage to a residential unit.
“As part of the development it is proposed to renew the rendering to the front elevation with a white/ivory or cream colour finish to be decided and in keeping with the original design of the property.”
Planning documents add the area is “adequately catered for” with on-street car parking, with the option for business and residential permits available, while the development will also see the fire escape upgraded.
The ground floor, 74 Church Street, will remain a restaurant as part of the plans, and it is home to The Golden Gate Indian, which also offers takeaways.
Plans note the dwelling had been used for commercial and residential purposes since its construction around the early 1900s.
