Development manager Kevin Hudson said: ‘We have plans to create 17 environmentally friendly new family homes on this historic, disused site.

‘We'd like to see as many people as possible at the public open drop-in session so we can show them what we'd like to do with the building.’

The council hopes to apply for planning permission this winter for 13 two-bedroom flats and four one-bedroom flats.
