We’ve watched Wessex House – on the corner of Park Street and Southwell Park Road – with interest for a while. Back in December 2013 (yes, 2013 – that’s not a mistake) we wrote that a planning application had been submitted to turn the office building into flats.
But nothing seemed to happen. At least, nothing obvious happened until early this year, when a ‘For Sale’ sign appeared on the building. Whether the building was actually sold, we don’t know, but a very recent planning application proposes ‘cosmetic’ changes to the outside of the building. These are to give it a residential, rather than a commercial, appearance.
