Plans have been submitted to convert redundant bank offices in the village centre into apartments.
Salford based, Mango Homes are seeking planning permission to create four new residential units on the first and second floor of the former Barclays Bank, which was built in 1904. The existing ground and basement will remain for commercial use.
The one-bedroom apartments will be accessed via a new glazed entrance with stairs and a lift to all floors and four cycle parking spaces will be provided.
The development will include a scheme of structural repairs to the listed building and clock, as well as repairs to make the listed building watertight to "secure the historic fabric for the future".
Plans can be viewed on the Cheshire East Council website by searching for planning reference 22/4743M.

I've seen you many times on your bike in the village! Maybe they could equip each flat with an electric bike charging point!
By the way, you don't have to be a fanatic to be concerned about climate change. Easy to be cynical in Alderley Edge, but not in Somalia or Pakistan.
