Plans to add office accommodation to historic Grade II Listed Gloucester Docks warehouse
By James Young | 21st February 2020
The ground floor of one of the historic Grade II-Listed warehouses in Gloucester Docks could be turned into offices if plans are approved by city council planners.
The application is to turn 265 square metres of space currently assigned to residential and restaurant and café use into offices.
According to the application, the change of use will allow for offices for up to 28 employees.
Documents lodged with the planning application state: "The aim of this proposal is to the change the use of the ground floor of the Lock house from residential into an office space following the trend of the adjacent warehosues along the Docks.
"Careful consideration has been made during design process to create a scheme that is most sympathetic and appropriate to the original aesthetic.
"The internal works involve the construction internal stud and glazed partition walls. A frame would be constructed and fixed to the existing walls, floor and ceiling.
"The proposed installations would not be permanent, and the partitions would be fully demountable ensuring the space can be returned to its existing form at the necessary time.
"The works are therefore completely reversible and therefore would not impact adversely the original layout of the building."
