An office building in Welwyn Garden City could be turned into 40 new homes under plans being weighed up.

The owners of Highways House, in Broadwater Road, have lodged a bid to convert the former offices into one-bedroom homes.

Planning agent Gay Parry, from Barker Parry Town Planning, said the commercial property market in the town is currently saturated.

She added: “The building itself is in fairly good nick internally, it’s a case of removing partitions and putting other partitions up.”

The two-storey building is owned by Stratton II Sarl.

It was used by the county’s highways department until September 2012.
