The Leeds-based developer is bringing forward an aparthotel in a former post office at Palmyra Square, one of two schemes it has planned for the town centre.
The £1.8m project will see the upper floors of the building, pictured above, converted into 21 bedrooms, while commercial space on the ground floor will be retained.
The developer has also submitted plans for a £3.5m residential scheme on Museum Street, featuring 27 apartments. This will include a mixture of conversion and new build; the original structure will be refurbished, while the rear buildings will be demolished and replaced with a three-storey extension.
The apartments, which are split between one and two-beds, will be targeted at owner-occupiers.
Priestley’s construction business will act as main contractor on both projects, subject to them receiving planning permission. Both applications are being brought forward in partnership with property firm Immedi-Let.
