FLATS Plan For Guesthouse Premises At Listed Greenock Building

20 June, 2022 | Local, Planning

PLANS have been drawn up to convert part of a historic Greenock building into apartments.

A change-of-use application has been submitted for guesthouse premises at 61 Newark Street, part of C-listed Lindores.

Three flats would be formed, one on each floor. A side extension would also be built to accommodate a staircase.

The proposal is pending consideration by Inverclyde Council planners.

Lindores was built as a house in the 1880s and was owned by various wealthy businessmen including Alexander Park Lyle, owner of Lyle Shipping Company Limited and son of Abram Lyle of Tate and Lyle.

During the First World War it was used as a reception hospital by the Red Cross and in the Second World War it was a base for Canadian Wrens.

The building was later subdivided; other addresses that are part of Lindores include 158, 160, 162, 164 and 166 Finnart Street.
