The office block called Absolute, in Frimley’s Lyon Way industrial estate, is the subject of a new planning application. Inevitably, the intention is to convert the building into flats.
“Application for Prior Approval under Part 3 Class O of the General Permitted Development Order for the conversion of offices to 36 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom flats”
The first floor of the building used to be occupied by Surrey County Council. This notice is still above the abandoned reception desk – it can only just about be seen, let-alone photographed, from outside the building.
Photocopied notices stuck on the entrance lobby windows state that the Registrar of Births and Deaths has moved to the borough council’s offices in Knoll Road. We don’t know what has happened to the other services.
