A KITCHEN showroom in Leominster could become a house as the company no longer needs it.

Applicant Steve Ensor of Russell Alexander Kitchens has asked Herefordshire Council if he can change the use of 44 Broad Street from a shop to domestic accommodation.

Plans, submitted by agents Marches Conservation Services, show how an opening would be created in an internal partition wall.


The business, based in Southern Avenue, used the shop for display purposes, but it has made changes to the way its promoting itself so no longer needs the premises.

"The location is not a prime retail area being north of the main Broad Street shops," a design and access statement said.

"The pavement reduces in width and the road widens and becomes busier being the A44 principal carriageway east to west."


It said adjacent properties are predominantly domestic accommodation, and the only change to the structure would be the opening in the partition wall to access the rear from the front room.

Comments on application 211550 can be made until Friday, June 18, with planners setting Tuesday, July 13 as a target date for a decision.
