A London-based developer has applied for planning permission to convert office space in Welwyn Garden City into 18 flats.

Philip Mallon, of GPL 2014 Ltd, has applied to Welwyn Hatfield Council for a change of use from offices to dwellings at Fountain House, 1-7 Howardsgate.

In the application, it is stated: “The proposed development comprises a change of use of the first and second floor of the Fountain House from the existing office use to a residential use creating 18 apartments in total.

“An extensive acoustic survey has been carried out to measure and assess the noise generated by the adjacent commercial premises in order to propose adequate noise mitigation measures.

“The survey reports form part of our application.

“New constructions will be proposed in accordance with the recommendations of the acoustic engineer.”

The plans are currently open to consultation.

They are available to view on the council’s website.
