An application has been lodged to turn a former care home in Sheringham into two townhouses.

Rob Ravilious wants North Norfolk District Council's permission to convert the former Kingsgate Residential Home in North Street.

The care home closed in January 2021 after it was rated as inadequate by the Care Quality Commission.

The building, is in the Sheringham Conservation Area and consists of 29 single rooms, two shared rooms and two rooms with en suite bathrooms.

It is surrounded by residential properties.

Due to the application being for 'principle permission' only, no details of layout, landscaping or appearance have yet been submitted.
