Project Description The conversion of the dilapidated listed two storey Edwardian council office building, Oakland House, to create four two bedroom apartments with a further two bedroom apartment in the adjacent single storey Lawson House which was previously Tettenhall Library, together with new build houses and apartments.
As the development was adjacent to the Tettenhall Green local conservation area, much emphasis was placed on the retention of both Oaklands and Lawson house and the scheme was granted planning permission following extensive detailed discussions with Wolverhampton City Council Planning Department to ensure that both the existing and new build elements would create a harmonious overall design that would enhance the local area.
