A former neighbourhood electrical repair shop is set to be turned into two homes.
Its owners Mr and Mrs Boyle have applied for permission to turn it into a three-bedroom maisonette. The one bedroom flat above will remain as it is.
In recent years, Islingword Road has lost several of its shops and pubs. The London Unity and Horse and Groom have both been sold by Enterprise Inns, although the latter has just been listed as an asset of community value.
The pianola shop and the second hand boutique The Changing Room and sports equipment shop Bee on the Jack have also closed in recent years.
