A well known Chinese restaurant in Codocote may soon be converted into housing.

North Herts planners have given the go-ahead to a housing project at the As You Like It, which is in a listed building.

Permission was granted despite onjections from villagers.

The restaurant building will be changed into two three-bed houses, with a single-storey extension to the rear.

The existing rear extension and garage will be demolished.

An outbuilding will be converted in to a two-bed property.

And five two-bed mews houses will be built behind the car park, along with a garden wall, bin store and parking spaces.
