A planning application has been submitted to convert an old Brown Edge post office into two homes.

The application was submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council this week by a Mr Chris Willis, and relates to the old post office on 194, High Lane, Brown Edge.

Biddulph Nub News reported a year ago how planning permission was previously granted to convert the post office into a part of a residential home, after it was ruled that planning permission was not needed for the proposed conversion.

Since this latest application was only submitted recently, details on the new plans are scarce, meaning it is currently unclear how the new application will affect this previous conversion.

However, the plans appear to indicate that only part of the post office was converted last year, with the new application aiming to convert the rest of the post office into another home, combining with the already converted area to create a total of two homes in the old post office building.

The plans have currently received one letter from a member of the public, submitted by a D Spooner, manager of The Hollybush pub in Brown Edge.

He supported the application, saying: "Brown Edge needs more housing, it would be good to see something done with the old post office."
