In 2007, planning application 07/P3668 from the Genesis Housing Group to build a block of flats on this site was refused, but was later allowed in 2009 after an appeal. The application was for
Construction of four-storey block consisting of commercial units on ground floor (uses within classes A1(retail), A2 (financial and professional services) and B1 (business) and 14 residential units, with associated access, parking & works.
The site had become a petrol filling station and when this application was submitted it had been no longer in use as such.
