Another city centre office block could be turned into flats.
Edwina Hughes has applied to convert the Grade II listed block in Bank Street into 21 apartments and a studio.
The site comprises two linked buildings that were formerly courts and offices, used until 1973 when they were converted entirely into offices.
The main high-ceiling two- storey building fronts Bank Street while the rear three- storey building fronts Scargill Croft.
According to the plans the storey number does not represent the height of the buildings because of the size of the former court rooms.
The application says: “The internal condition of the building is generally very poor quality having been unoccupied for several years.
“The building has been extensively marketed for commercial use with no interest.”
