Plans lodged for Norwich building conversion

A new bid to create 25 flats is now underway on Prince of Wales Road in Norwich.

The prospective site is an office building based in a social hub of Norwich known for its nightlife of clubs and bars. In 2019, insurance brokers the Alan Boswell Group vacated the premises on 100 Prince of Wales Road, with its personnel set to relocate to Prospect House over on Rouen Road this year.

Building plans for the residential project have been submitted to Norwich City Council and, if approved, will see the extensive three-floor office space converted into 25 individual apartments. Architects in Chester, Norwich and other UK cities can assist in preparing planning applications. Using their local knowledge and understanding of council rules they can sometimes improve the chances of an application being given the go ahead.

Planning papers for the building conversion project, commented:

“Historically, Prince of Wales Road has a mix of uses of commercial and late-night activity use, but in recent years there have been a number of buildings which have gained approved to be used for residential purposes.”

The office is situated at the corner of St Faith’s Lane and Prince of Wales Road, next door to accommodation used by students. If the new scheme is given the go ahead, it will be among the latest in a list of residential developments planned for the area, like the nearby Mercy nightclub that has already been approved this year for a conversion into residences.
