Empty shop to be converted into flats
1:46pm Sunday 24th February 2013 in News
A RETAIL building that has stood empty for seven months will be brought back to life as four apartments.
The building, on North Road at the Whessoe Road junction, formerly housed a sandwich shop, a fabrics store and a partyware shop but has been vacant since August last year.
Darlington Council planners approved an application to convert the building into four apartments after agreeing that bringing a vacant building back into use outweighed the negative of losing it as a retail premises.
