A prior approval application has been submitted to Kingston Council for the conversion of an office and warehouse into ten residential dwellings. The offices will be converted into four one bedroom flats, while the warehouse will be converted into four houses and a disused house converted into two flats – one two-bed, one one-bed apartment.
The site, at 15 Lime Grove, is an unusual application in that it is combined various permitted development schemes into a single application. These include storage to residential, which has tighter rules than office to residential and is less common to see utilised. It appears as if the house was converted to business usage, then a warehouse added in the late 19th or early 20th century, followed by the office block in the 1960s.
