The building has planning consent for use as offices within Class B1, education and training and medical uses within Class D2. A pre-application submission to Wiltshire Council has been made to
establish the potential for conversion of the building into residential use and sub-division. A copy is available, together with the submission documents, from ourselves on request. This envisaged sub-division into four residential units split over ground and first floors. The pre-application response indicates that planning consent may be achieved, subject to detailed submission of how sub-division may be undertaken to protect the historic fabric, confirmation that the property
has been marketed to test demand for office use (this process has been completed) and subject to the outcome of a Flood Risk Assessment. Further details on request. Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the suitability of their proposed use. All enquiries should be directed to
