A VACANT bakery and yard could make way for three new homes under newly-revealed plans.

Drawings included as part of the application for the brownfield site on Cockenzie High Street show how the area could be transformed.

Retail premises at 91 High Street were previously used as a bakery while there is a yard next to it.

The shop would be turned into a two-bedroom flat under the plans from Nazia Kareem.

The neighbouring yard would then be converted to feature a one-bedroom flat.

Above, split over two levels, would be a three-bedroom property.

A design and access statement included with the application reads: “The proposed development would improve, enhance and add to the appearance of the High Street, by respecting the form and layout of nearby buildings and utilising similar materials to match and complement the form and appearance of neighbouring buildings.

“The change of use of number 91 High Street from shopfront to residential with exterior alterations is similar to 53a High Street and provides a sympathetic change to the appearance of the property which alludes to its previous retail use.

“The proposed development would have no negative impacts on the conservation area or on the setting of any of the listed buildings within the conservation area.”
