Plans have been submitted to the Vale of Glamorgan Council for planning permission to expand the ‘ Shore‘ shop at Windsor Court on Penarth Esplanade.
Most people are probably unaware that behind the ‘Shore’ shop there’s an unused caretaker’s apartment at the rear of the premises on the ground floor of the Windsor Court apartment block.
Shore – an offshoot of Hamptons – is proposing to carry out alterations to incorporate the caretaker’s premises into the shop itself – thus making it larger.
The application also requests a “change of use” for the apartment from residential to A1 retail use. The application has yet to be considered by Penarth Town Council’s planning committee and the Vale of Glamorgan Council .
