The rest of the house remains as a house in multiple occupation (HMO) says Seven Green in his application to Fenland planners.

The selling and lettings office involves only minor internal alterations and external signage, he says.

“The building structure is suitable for the proposed minor alterations works and they will not have any affect on the structure,” says Mr Green.

“This building is of aesthetic value and this is important both in terms of contribution to its setting and its value to the community.

“The main significance of the place is that it is part of the Castle estate development of 1993 to 1816 which forms an important part of the town centre and conservation area.”

His application sets how the proposals “aspire to quality of design and construction. The consequences of the proposals are benign or do not prejudice alternative solutions in the future.”
