More changes have been approved for the conversion plans of three former school buildings in Marlborough.

A planning application has been given the green light by Wiltshire Council, adjusting the proposals for St Peter's Junior School which closed in 2017.

Planning permission was initially granted for its conversion into a 23-bedroom hotel after an application was submitted in 2019 by Sherbourne Developments.

After an unsuccessful marketing campaign that generated insufficient interest, the applicant proposed it instead become eight commercial suites, three flats and four maisonettes.

This was given the go ahead in 2021 and although construction work is underway, further adjustments have now been approved by Wiltshire Council.  

The new site is set to be entirely residential, with two houses, four maisonettes and seven flats along with the construction of seven new houses on land to the rear, providing a total of twenty new dwellings.

The work will also include the construction of a new combined refuse, re-cycling and bike storage building and parking for a total of forty-four cars.

The full details of the current and previous planning applications can be found on Wiltshire Council’s Planning and Building Control Public Register.
