Commercial to Residential Change of Use

Change of Use from Class A3 (Cafe/Bar) to Class C3 (Dwelling)

Project Description

Our client required a Change of Use application to be submitted to the Local Authority in order to refurbish a space, which was previously used as a popular Cafe/Bar, as a one bedroom flat.

We provided our Initial Needs & Options Review to ensure the design and construction of their project met with the current and future needs of the occupants. We surveyed the property,  draughted architectural and technical drawings, and prepared a Design Statement in support of the application. We then prepared the application form and submitted it, along with the documents, on behalf of the client to the Local Authority. 

We liaised regularly with the Local Authority to ensure the client was kept up-to-date with their application, which was approved in March 2020.

Refurbishment of the new flat is due for completion in due course.
