The proposed development includes restoration works to all facades; demolition of the existing ground and first floor extensions to the rear & removal of other internal alterations to the Ground Floor & Basement of No. 118 and to the 3 No Upper Floors of No 117 and No 118. New build works include for the fit out of the 3 Upper Floors as 3 No. 2 Bedroom Apartments, one apartment per floor, and the provision of a new external stairwell and boundary wall at the rear of the property.
