A single storey front extension will be built following the demolition of the existing access ramps to the front and a four storey rear extension to accommodate a new flight of stairs.

The building will be re-clad.

The developer is required to pay £10,000 to contribute towards the enhancement sustainable transport facilities in the area and £24,000 to contribute towards the enhancement of public open space
