New home at former music shop (20/00500/PAV)

Binfield’s much-loved Amen Corner Music closed down for good in January 2019 before hosting a clearance sale six months later.

Now new planning details indicate the store is set to become a home after an applicant submitted a prior approval notice to the council to turn the site into a residential dwelling.

Proposals submitted by applicants indicate rendered buildings in the South Wing will be removed to make way for the ten new apartments.
