Bakery demolition to build flats in Chesham, 28-30 High Street (PL/23/3332/FA)
Darvell and Sons Bakery, which was established in 1838, has applied for permission to demolish its bakery so 10 flats and seven retail units can be built.
A large part of the historic business lies “empty”, according to the proposals to convert it into six one-bedroom flats, three two-bedroom and one-bathroom flats and one two-bedroom and two-bathrooms flat.
The design statement reads: “The bakery has been in the same family for generations, but no obvious succession exists to take on the responsibility of the business.
“This application is an opportunity for the area to benefit economically and aesthetically, an opportunity that may be lost if not seized at this time.”
