Plans resubmitted in bid to convert offices into luxury flats

PLANS to convert offices near Leamington into luxury flats have been resubmitted.

Originally Jephson House on Stoneleigh Road in Blackdown was set to be converted into 23 affordable apartments.

But a planning application has now been submitted to Warwick District Council for the building – built in the 1850s – to be turned into nine apartments, nine mews homes, two terraced properties’ and two detached properties.

Property developer Spitfire Bespoke Homes has submitted the application and say the original building – which was used as offices until December 2017 – will be kept.

All of the other buildings on the site will be demolished.

A spokesman from Spitfire said: “The proposal will create a high quality housing development within the wider area of Blackdown which will maintain and enhance the architectural character. The proposal will provide a positive contribution to the hamlet in an appropriate form and scale.

“The use of quality materials, attention to local architectural detail and careful disposition of buildings will create a quality environment fully in keeping with the character of the area.”
