Plans to refit the office in Fish Street, off Abington Street, town centre, have been resubmitted to the borough council after a draft proposal was withdrawn last year.

The new application aims to build 20 student rooms within three flats, a restaurant with a hot food takeaway and a shop

Fish Street will also be adapted to allow for an outdoor seating area outside the restaurant.
