Five new flats could be built by knocking down a single storey extension containing one home and building a two-storey extension with five flats in Weymouth.

Dorset Council has received the application for 524 Littlemoor Road.

Application papers say the double-fronted Victorian building, on the northern side of the road at the junction with Jestys Avenue, is currently converted to two flats with a third in the single storey extension, which is proposed for demolition.

If agreed the extension would double the size of the building as well as improve parking on the site and remove a shed and decked area.
