Plans to con­vert old pub

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

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.
