An historic Stowmarket pub, which is due to close for good at the end of the month, could be converted into six flats if plans are accepted.
It was announced on Friday that the Kings Arms in Station Road will close following the retirement of the long-standing landlady. Final orders in the pub, which was built in 1910, will be on October 31.
However, plans are already afoot to build a further six flats on the site.
The application, submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council, says that six, one-bed flats will be built on the car park.
There will be no alteration to the image of the building’s exterior, and the new building will not be able to be seen from the street.

The plans, submitted by Icon Architects says that the new flats will provide “limited but positive social implications” by delivering additional homes in a sustainable location.
The building currently flanks the Stowmarket Train Stations car park and the building fronts onto Station Road.
