A spokesman said: “We are extremely pleased by the high quality of the proposals and look forward to their consideration by Crawley Building Council.”

A spokesman for planning adviser D. Rose Planning LLP said: “The proposals transform a tired and vacant building and deliver much-needed homes including affordable housing in an accessible location.”

The council registered the plans today (Thursday July 16). They included external alterations and extensions to the building for 111 flats. A three-storey building for ten flats would be built on the site.

It is expected to determine the planning application in the autumn.

The council approved the building’s previous owner’s application to make it residential last year.
