Applicant Great Western Properties Ltd wants to convert Dolphin Court into the one-bedroom properties.

An application has been submitted to transform a section of a historic two-storey building in the heart of Honiton into six new flats.

Applicant Great Western Properties Ltd wants to convert Dolphin Court into the one-bedroom properties.

Currently, Dolphin Court houses Honiton Carpets, with offices above.

The building lies to the rear of the former Dolphin Hotel, a Grade II listed building now known as Montgomery’s.

In its application, Great Western Properties said: “This application involves the conversion of only the first floor office accommodation.”

The applicant said it is unsure whether listed building consent is needed for the building’s conversion.

It said that an assessment needs to be carried out to check if any proposed development is subject to such an application.

Although museum records show the two-storey building was constructed in 1923, it is not confirmed whether it is listed.

The application added: “After a decision has been reaches upon the planning merits of what is involved in this application, a decision will then be taken of the necessity for a listed building application.”

Under the proposals, each flat would offer its occupant(s) a ‘good standard of amenity’.

The application added: “Most of the work involves sub-dividing the 1980s partitioning that was associated with the change of use of this building to offices.”
