APPROVAL has been granted for change of use of the former Royal British Legion (RBL) building in Westgate Street, Launceston to a residential dwelling.
The property, which was once the town’s police station and contained a number of holding cells, was used by the RBL as their main headquarters in the town.
The RBL put the property up for sale in September 2020 as the club had deemed the building “financially unviable in the current climate”. The branch said it was unable to hold meetings within the building as its rooms were not spacious enough for more than six people to be present whilst socially distancing.
The current applicant purchased the property in late 2021. Now, the approved plans will see the creation of a five-bedroom home with music room and study within the two-storey building.
Launceston Town Council had supported the plan.
