Former Royal Garrison pub in Preston could be transformed into eight apartments
The former Royal Garrison pub in Preston could be transformed into eight apartments.
Design plans for the vacant public house, hotel and office at 191 and 193 Watling Street Road show how applicant Ali Shan will convert the spaces into two dwellings with eight flats.
Planning documents state: “This proposal is for the conversion of mixed-use business property into two dwellings.
“Both dwellings consist of a large accommodation.
“The proposal will refurbish both flats which are currently in a state of complete repair.
“Entrance to both dwellings is separate.
“External amenity is provided to both units accessed from an existing rear and side entrance.”
In the past the ground floor at 191 Watling Street Road had been used as a bar area with the first and second floors used as offices.
The main entrance at 193 Watling Street Road was shared with the pub entrance while the first and second floor had been used as a hotel with an external metal staircase providing access to the first floor from a rear parking area.
The Victorian four-storey building, which include cellar rooms, are located within the Fulwood Conservation Area.
There are car parking spaces for 19 vehicles towards the back.
