The new application contains plans for the refurbishment of 279.4 sq.m of existing derelict outbuildings at ground and first floor level, for use of the refurbished areas of the outbuildings as a speciality bicycle retail store.

There are provisions for the removal of the existing asbestos roof, the replacement of the roof structure and finishes, and modifications to the existing facade including the insertion of new windows and doors.

Plans for the removal of two existing external steel stairwells and the construction of a new external steel stairwell also form part of the application.

The submission includes plans for a new glazed 13.8 sq.m entrance lobby, replacement curtain walling to the northeast courtyard facade and the removal of the existing internal stairwell and lift shaft.

Provisions for the construction of a new internal staircase and minor modifications to the interior of the existing protected structures and the construction of new WC and changing facilities and a new universal access WC are also included.

It is proposed that the widening of the existing external gated entrance, the insertion of a new sliding gate and new courtyard surface finishes and landscaping and all ancillary site works will also form part of the refurbishment.

There are provisions for new external signage on the northwest and southwest elevations and a new vehicular goods entrance to the northwest elevations.

It is also noted in the application that Brown’s Barn Bar and Kitchen is a protected structure.
