13-17 High Street Gets the Go Ahead...

The first High Street building has been granted planning permission under the HLF Project

An application for the change of use of the current derelict first and second floors at 13-17 High Street has been approved. The owner’s agent, Maxey Grounds, will be converting these floors into residential accommodation.

There will be no major external structural changes to the property, but as a requirement of the project, there will be work and alterations to the windows and retail shop fronts on the ground floor to reinstate a traditional shop front.

This is the first exciting development on the High Street which has been made possible by the HLF Townscape Heritage scheme grant, and we anticipate seeing many more developments over the next four years.

Further details of the plans and works to be carried out can be found on the FDC online planning portal.

  • Purdy’s takes me back to the 1960’s when my mother was a waitress there, one day she mixed up the salad cream bowl with the dessert cream and the customer had an unexpected sweet and sour dish! I had many happy times there we lived around the corner at the Congregational Chapel
