PLANS have been lodged to convert a place of worship in Tredegar into a family home.
Owain Hallett has submitted a change of use planning application to Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council that would allow the Gospel Hall on Poplar Road, Georgetown, Tredegar to become a residential property.
The Hall is a two-storey building that was originally built as a chapel in 1910.
It was then bought to be used as a Gospel Hall in 1969.
Agent Llinos Hallett explained the scheme.
Miss Hallett said: “The proposal results in the reuse of an existing brownfield site and the re-purposing of a building which contributes positively to the streetscape and secures the future of this historic building.”
In her planning statement Miss Hallett points out that the former St John Church in the town has been allowed to change its use to become a residential property.
Miss Hallett said: “The site comprises a large hall and surrounding area which provides ample off-street parking.
“The site occupies a prominent position in Poplar Road and Georgetown is a well-established residential area located approximately a mile from Tredegar town centre.”
