Gloucester nightclub set to be converted into flats

A Gloucester nightclub could soon be closed down after approval was given to turn the building into 23 flats.

Plans have been approved by Gloucester City Council to convert the Registry and Elevation nightclub in Bruton Way into 23 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom residential apartments.

Chibroco Ltd, a local firm of property investors and developers, are behind the application and have said in a statement to planners: "The premises has been trading for a number of years as a nightclub but the current owners wish to cease this trade and sell the premises.

"The premises have been marketed over an extensive period of time without success."

The application also added that the approved conversion will contribute towards helping to ease the increasing lack of housing across the city.

It said that the flats would be attractive to first-time buyers, particularly single people with limited finances.

The apartments will be situated on both ground and first floor levels, with ground floor apartments being fully accessible to wheelchair users.

The existing large basement area will be used to provide a communal cycle storage facility as well as additional storage for the apartments.

The redevelopment site is well connected to the city centre including the adjacent leisure centre, Asda supermarket to the east and numerous bars and restaurants.
