Witham: Part of town centre shop to convert to housing
12:00pm Monday 29th October 2012 in News
Part of a wallpaper and upholstery shop which closed suddenly in August could now be converted into housing.
Mellons, in Newland Street, Witham, closed on August 10 after several decades in the town.
A planning application has been submitted to convert the back half of the premises into a two-bedroom home.
Applicant Brian Mills said: “I am proposing to turn the back half of the shop (the upper level) into a two bed dwelling whilst still keeping the front half of the building as a shop as the owners have no need to have the shop this big anymore.
The Mellons DIY shop in Halstead closed down in April, after 50 years. Two people were made redundant at the time, while two staff were transferred to the Witham branch.
