Braintree: Flats planned for former Blandford House surgery
9:00am Friday 12th October 2012 in News
Proposals to convert a former doctor's surgery into flats have been submitted.
Developer Grahams Building Services has applied to turn Blandford House, in London Road, Braintree, into ten flats.
The building was previously a doctor's surgery until the practice relocated to a purpose-built site in Mace Avenue in August 2008.
A planning application, submitted last week, also involves the building of four homes in the grounds of the house and the creation of a car park.
The exterior of the original 18th century Grade II listed building will be maintained, but a 1960s extension, which was used as a nursery, is set to be demolished.
