The shop at the bottom of New Street in Huthwaite has been closed and boarded up for ages and looking very sorry for itself. Its time it had some love. We have applied for permission to convert it to two flats – a two-bed flat on the ground floor, and a three-bed first floor flat. The old shop front will be removed and a new wall built flush with the first floor to give a proper residential look. It will be uprated with new thermal and acoustic insulation, new windows throughout and parking. Fingers crossed for the planning application!
