A SOLICITORS firm has applied to convert a terraced house into a new office.

Auburn Legal Ltd is seeking permission for a change of use in relation to a property in Auburn Street, Daubhill.

A document submitted to Bolton Council planning chiefs outlines plans to change the current living room into an office with three desks, one server and a filing cabinet.

And under the proposals the back room would be converted into a meeting area, containing sofas and a work desk. The upstairs will be used for storage.

Residents living nearby in Essingdon Street and Auburn Street will be consulted on the plans by the council.
