Plans have been submitted to convert part of an office block in the town centre, into four flats, increasing the number of properties within the building.

An application has been submitted to Ipswich Borough Council to convert part of Giles Place on 31 Princes Street into four flats.

This would increase the number of flats in the building to 39, after an application for 17 one-bed and 18 two-bed homes was approved back in 2021.

An application was rejected by the council of a similar nature, to build 12 new flats in the building, due to adequate natural light not being provided.

The building was formerly occupied by Direct Line Group.

The four flats proposed will be one-bedroom units, suitable for two people.

Cycle and refuse storage plans have been submitted as part of the application and it has been stated that the revised plans present no concerns in terms of natural daylight.

Ipswich Borough Council will discuss the plans in due course.
