Office may be turned into home

A DEVELOPER has submitted plans to turn an office in Henley into a house.

A DEVELOPER has submitted plans to turn an office in Henley into a house.

Denton & Co has applied to convert the premises of Oxley Conservation, a historic buildings consultancy, in Friday Street but the business will continue trading.

The two-storey building, which is in a conservation area, currently has storage and meeting facilities on the ground floor with office and staff facilities on the first floor.

The application says the existing access in Friday Street would remain. There would be facilities to store bikes but no parking spaces.

The layout inside would be altered to add a kitchen and bathroom.



Richard Oxley, a chartered surveyor who founded Oxley Conservation, said: "We are looking at options but the company is still operating and we will still work in the same area if we decide to move."

The developer has applied for permitted development rights, which means prior approval could be given by South Oxfordshire District Council without the need for planning permission.
