Planning permission has been sought to convert the old Shelf Library in Wade House Road.

Manchester-based company Butterfield Architecture has applied to convert Tower Buildings into apartments.

The plans propose four apartments, each with two bedrooms.

Shelf Library moved into an extension adjoining Shelf Village Hall in May 2009 at a cost of 340,000. Anyone wishing to make representations needs to do so by February 2 by contacting janine.branscombe@
