Shop to house idea
An old sandwich bar could be turned into a shared house.
The closed Grafters shop - a terraced building on the corner of Laverack Street and Richmond Road, Handsworth - would become a seven-bedroom property if plans are granted permission by the council at a meeting on Tuesday.
Eleven objections have been received, some on parking grounds.
But, recommending approval, officers said the house would not have a ‘significant adverse impact’, adding: “The proposal will provide much-needed residential accommodation.”
