Cotswold shop could become flats
By Andrew Merrell | 28th January 2020
Plans are afoot to convert a former antiques shop in Stow-on-the-Wold into apartments.
Cotswold District Council has received the request for permission to convert Vanburgh House on Park Street.
If successful the bay-fronted Cotswold stone building at the end of a row of businesses would become four apartments.
Permission if for the "existing ground floor retail unit with living accommodation arranged over the ground and first floors to be changed to solely residential use, comprising four apartments.
"External works include landscaping and repair of the existing property, replacement of all windows and doors, the addition of new doors and windows, and renewal of existing rendered surface.
"Internal works include wholesale refurbishment and repair, including the introduction of a new staircase."
The floorspace is estimated at 27.1 square metres.
The shop was previously a place to go for furniture and decorative items from the 17th to early 19th C, including maps, music boxes, square pianos, clocks and barometers.
