Plans to convert old pub
Plans to turn a former Peterborough pub into apartments have been submitted to Peterborough City Council.
The proposals to renovate and extend the derelict Northfields pub in St Paul’s Road, New England, into nine apartments was submitted by the Keshwara family.
Their application states: “The proposal is for a bespoke conversion of this attractive local building which will fit into and respects the character of the site and its surroundings.
“The site will provide nine additional homes to meet the needs of Peterborough in terms of its current difficulties in relation to housing land supply.”
The pub became vacant in 2014.
Each new apartment would be on two levels with a kitchen and bathroom downstairs and sleeping accommodation on the first floor.
Thieves targeted the derelict pub in May, stealing copper piping which in turn caused a gas leak, forcing police to cordon off the road.
