Proposals to turn office into housing

Have your say

THE long-standing home of a screen printing and engraving firm could become housing.

Tealwood and Co has outgrown its current premises in Sultan Road, Emsworth, and is moving to Waterlooville.

Plans have been submitted to Havant Borough Council to convert the existing office accommodation into three flats.

The workshop would be replaced with a single house with gardens and parking.

A planning report states: ‘Tealwood and Co has outgrown its current premises due to increased business which has necessitated its relocation to Waterlooville, where it has purchased a building of 9,500sq ft which was previously empty.

‘It is clear from the condition of the premises at Sultan Road that the accommodation is sub market standard and to bring it up to market standard would require significant investment, which would be unviable.’

One parking space per dwelling is proposed.

A final decision will be made at a later date.
