The plan is to convert the former retail property to form two dwellings, with the bid also incorporating land east of 20 South Street.

The property, and the adjoining plot of land, were put up for sale in 2020 with an asking price of £100,000. It was described as “an ideal commercial development or a development opportunity with additional neighbouring plot with full permission consent.”
