Old M&S building may be converted to flats

Plans for nearly 100 new flats in the centre of Peterborough have been submitted to Peterborough City Council.

A planning application to convert the upper floors of the former Marks & Spencer store in Bridge Street into 98 one and two bedroom units has been submitted to the authority by Progressive Property Assets Ltd.

The ground floor of the building is currently occupied by B&M Bargains, however the upper floors have been vacant since Marks & Spencer left the site in March 2016.

If approved, the flats would be created through partial demolition and conversion of the upper floors to create new floors.

There would also be new windows and doors built on the existing elevations as well as cladding to help tie the old and new aspects together, preserving the character of the building.
