A planning application has been submitted to turn a former shop and office into two houses.

The building, known as Project House, lies on the corner of The Drive and Rugby Road, Worthing.

It is home to Electrical Services & Projects Limited but a design statement says the building ‘has become too cramped to be used as commercial space’.

A planning application seeks to turn the building, at 30a The Drive, into one two-bed house and one three-bed house.

An added side extension and a private courtyard would feature if permission is granted.

Both homes – which would retain the appearance of the existing building but with added windows – would have front gardens. Two car parking spaces are proposed for the homes and a fence which would ‘give the front garden some privacy’.

More details can be found at the council’s planning portal using the reference: AWDM/0451/22.
