Informal advice from the planners indicate that some of the buildings are listed where it is envisaged that a conversion to C3 residential use may be the most likely outcome, although other uses may be appropriate. The unlisted buildings and surrounding land also might be converted or redeveloped subject to consideration of both the setting of the listed buildings and conservation area designation.
