Am­bi­tious plan to turn shops into flats

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

Eye-catch­ing plans to turn aban­doned shops in Ash­ford town cen­tre into a six-storey block of flats have been sub­mit­ted to the coun­cil.

De­vel­op­ers want to ex­tend the Trafal­gar House build­ing at the bot­tom of Bank Street. They want to build a six-storey cor­ner ex­ten­sion, with retail space on the ground floor and 14 one-bed­room flats above.

OSG Ar­chi­tec­ture has drawn up the plans for Shap­tor Cap­i­tal. OSG direc­tor Jason Chan­dler said: “We and our clients have worked closely with the plan­ners at Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil in or­der to con­ceive a scheme that has a mod­ern aes­thetic, but also ties in well with the ex­ist­ing Trafal­gar House build­ing, which has re­cently been re­fur­bished and turned into apart­ments.

“While our clients al­ready had a plan­ning ap­proval for a de­vel­op­ment in this lo­ca­tion, we have come up with an amended de­sign.”

A pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion closes on Sun­day.
