Plans to turn a hundred-year-old listed barracks block in Ebrington into office accommodation were given the green light by the Council’s Planning Committee on Wednesday.

Members of the committee approved full planning permission and listed buildings consent for the refurbishment and extension of the former barracks building at Building 104, which bounds the northern limit of the Ebrington site at St Columb’s Road.

The application is for the refurbishment, extension and change of use of an existing listed building to provide 19 no offices.

The application also includes the removal of an existing ablutions block and replacement with a new two storey extension forming a new main entrance and toilet facilities.

Members of the Planning Committee were informed at the meeting that there were no representations received in relation to the application and that all consultations with relevant bodies has taken place and been approved with conditions.

The old barracks was originally constructed between 1895 and 1904.
