Change of use from retail to ‘financial and professional services’ for two shops approved

Plans to change the use of two vacant town centre shops have been given the go ahead.

The application for 21 to 23 Regent Street were approved via a delegated decision by the head of environment and planning at Wrexham Council earlier this month.

In February Wrexham.com reported that an application – submitted by Savills on behalf of the applicant – sought to change the use of the two shops from Class A1 Retail to Class A2 Financial and Professional Services.

The properties themselves are the former Yeomans and Clarks – which has been vacant since its relocation to Eagles Meadow back in 2014.

Under the new use the properties can be used for the likes of financial services (ie. building societies and banks) and professional services (ie. an estate agents or employment agencies).

The plans submitted last month seem to indicate that the properties will be made into one large unit – with the wall between them removed.

New frontage, including doors, windows and signage are also proposed for the properties.
