Plans to convert former Barclays Bank into apartments

An application has been made to convert part of the former Barclays bank in Driffield town centre into apartments.

The plans are to turn the first and second floors from offices into five apartments and have been submitted to East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Nottingham-based Younas and Virdi Properties Ltd wants to create three one-bedroomed flats on the first floor, and a one bedroom flat and a two-bedroomed property on the second floor.

The application does not indicate what the ground floor would be used for.

Barclays closed its Market Place branch in January. Initially, the Harkalm Group was looking to buy the building and bring in a high street retailer, but when this fell through, a national care group was said to be looking to move in.

However, with the building approaching one year of standing derelict, the new planning application was submitted earlier this month.
