No.3 High Street, Warminster, with its frontage in scaffolding with "Dangerous Building" signs and dust and debris, has blotted the town centre and been an ugly neighbour for the Chapel of St. Lawrence for several years. It has been an on-going eyesore for Warminster residents and visitors, many of whom have commented loudly or written endlessly of the need to be rid of it. Two years ago, an online petition started by Michael Heaton, received 259 signees.
At long last, there is good news: a planning application for No.3 High Street has been made to Wiltshire Council for the "Refurbishment of existing frontage building to provide 2 shops with 4 flats above plus new residential development of 5 dwellings and ancillary parking and landscaping to the rear."
The applicant is Mr Huy Nguyen (his company is listed as HKandQ Developments Ltd., with the address 5 Keith Road, Bournemouth, BH3 7DS) and his agent is The Architecture Practice, based in Bath.
The consultation period expires on Friday 9th June 2017 and the target date for a decision is Tuesday 13th June 2017.
The planning application number is 17/03839/FUL
