PROPOSAL: Listed Building Consent - alterations and refurbishment of two first floor bathrooms and the ground floor w/c including alterations to original layout; removal of original features and introduction of extract fans and external waste pipe configuration.

 

Councillor Marilyn Ashton proposed granting the application for the following reason:
