New homes plan for listed building plot

A solicitors’ firm in Kettering which has occupied a listed building in West Street, Kettering, for almost 60 years has applied for planning permission to convert the site into six homes and build an additional four houses.

Lamb and Holmes Solicitors says in its application that the firm is moving into a more modern office. Its site at 10-12 West Street is Grade II listed.

Ten parking spaces will be provided for the properties. In their plans the applicants say 20 were originally suggested but the number was reduced after advice from Kettering Council.
