Former HMRC site to be transformed into apartments

Plans have been submitted to transform a former HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) car park  into more than 100 apartments as part of a scheme led by a Doncaster business.

DLP Planning has drawn up the designs for the Heelis Street residential scheme for Empire Property Concepts, a Doncaster based property investment firm.

The development would be constructed on the site of a car park which was created to service the HMRC offices at Joseph Locke House in Barnsley.

Until 2013, Joseph Locke House, which is owned by Empire Property Concepts, was fully occupied by HMRC. However, after the body vacated the building it has been only partially let to the Department for Work and Pensions, whose lease expires in March 2018.

The whole development would comprise 81 one-bed flats and 20 two-bed flats, of which 15 would be listed as affordable properties.

The site can accommodate onsite parking in the form of an underground car park which would contain up to 17 parking spaces.

The intention is to redevelop Joseph Locke House into apartments once the Department for Work and Pensions has seen through its lease.

The design and access statement said: “With the conversion of the Joseph Locke building, the surrounding land uses  will be residential on three sides and therefore the proposed use will be in line with the changing character of the area.

“The remaining commercial uses nearby (an NHS centre, a bed retail outlet, and an auto parts store) are all compatible neighbours for a residential use.”
