A Nuthall pub which was involved in a fire last year looks set to become flats - if a planning application is given the green light by council leaders.

A planning application to convert The Lark’s Nest, in Larkfield Road, has been submitted to Broxtowe Borough Council.

The planned development includes five one-bedroom flats, a two-bedroom flat and a studio flat which would accommodate couples.

The proposal also includes a two-storey side extension, seven car parking spaces for residents, a bike shelter, bin storage space and five garden spaces.

The application was submitted by Nayan Padhiar from Leicester-based architects SKM Design.

The application said: “The primary focus of the scheme is to address the need for households to accommodate couples and single persons in accordance with the growing household figures in the borough.”

The planning application was made a year after fire crews were called to a blaze at the pub after one it its outbuildings caught fire.

The blaze was fuelled by wood and rubbish and was extinguished by firefighters, a spokesman said at the time..

Developers had wanted to build eight flats, but the number of planned flats was reduced to seven.
