A building which was earmarked for a development into flats ten years ago, but has since seen work stop, has been put on the market

Plans to convert the old Gem Printers building, in Rosary Road, were approved by Norwich City Council a decade ago, but the work was never completed.

The building, located at the junction with St Matthew Road, is advertised on William H Brown for a guide price of £325,000.

Developers can purchase the leasehold which invites a development opportunity for six flats.

Workers have recently been on site to complete some of the blockwork, and timber frame is already in place.

The application was made by a Mr John Astrop from Haywards Heath in West Sussex.
