BYM’s investment team decided to convert the buildings, starting with Bridge House, into residential apartments under permitted development regulations.

A range of small apartments was designed to provide accommodation suitable for first time buyers or buy-to-let landlords.

Planning was obtained for the conversion of the three existing office buildings to residential. The first building, Bridge House, will be converted to 140 apartments.

It is intended to develop Bridge House into a scheme of small apartments targeted at the local market. The remaining buildings were occupied by Xerox until 2020. Multiple planning opportunities are being explored for the remaining buildings.
