UK: Plans to convert a grade II-listed building in Liverpool into serviced apartments have been approved by the city council.

Regina House, at 1 Victoria Street, within the Castle Street Conservation Area, was built in the 1890s. It is currently used as offices and an education centre.

The application for change of use was lodged by JSM Group. It sought permission for the conversion of the upper ground floor to third floor to provide eight one-bedroom and four two-bedroom serviced apartments.

A document prepared by Liverpool City Council said: "The presence of large numbers of vacant, neglected buildings in the main office area represents a serious disincentive to investment in Liverpool. The city council is therefore keen to encourage the reuse of redundant office floorspace in the city centre for other purposes including residential uses."

The proposals were approved subject to a number of conditions.
