Grade II Shrewsbury building could become flats

By Lucy Todman | Shrewsbury | Property | Published:

A Grade II listed former boarding school in the heart of Shrewsbury could be turned in to luxury apartments if plans get the go-ahead.

Working on behalf of the applicant, chartered town planners Les Stephan Planning Ltd have applied to Shropshire Council for permission to turn a redundant office space in Hills Lane into four apartments.

The site has previously been used by a firm of solicitors but is now standing empty.

The application is to reconfigure the interior space in to a high-end development.

Each apartment would have a large open plan living area incorporating the kitchen, dining and living room spaces.

The apartments would be marketed as one, two and three-bedroom properties.

Many of the original features of the 18th century building, which when it was built was known as The Mansion House, would be retained including floorboards and balustrades.

The matter will now be discussed by members of the council's planning department in the new year.
