Plans submitted for former public toilet at Nell's Point

An application to convert the grade II listed former public toilet block on Barry Island has been submitted to the Vale of Glamorgan Council.

In Decemeber James Morse, of Morse Affiliated the company behind the development said "We are under offer with the Booth Group, who run the Harbour Bar & Grill in Porthcawl, and the Loungers Group for the two major units at Nell's Point,"

It's still unclear who will be located in the remaining two units, which were released in January through EJ Hales.

The toilet block was originally constructed in 1923, becoming a grade II listed building in 2010.

In planning documents submitted to the Vale of Glamorgan Council, it states that "The building has become dilapidated due to the age of the building and extent of water egress into the structure."

The development would convert the listed building, creating an extension to create four A3 units suitable for cafes, bars or restaurants.

The developers also say they would "retain the key features of the architectural interest with the existing rendered columns and rendered plinth to be repaired and reinstated"

Although the option was preferred by many local residents, the developers have concluded that the proposal of a museum is an unviable financial investment for the space.

The application will not go to a full Vale of Glamorgan Council planning committee meeting in the coming weeks.

How the development could look once completed.
