What are the plans and where?
Proposals submitted by applicant Paul Bond are seeking permission from the Council for the establishment of two first floor flats at 64 to 68 Westfield Street in St Helens town centre.
The location is directly across from the Beechams Building, and above Momo Cafe on the ground floor.
The plans say the café “will not be affected by the proposed development”.

The heritage statement, by planning agents Lawrenson Associates, says: “The first floor of the building has recently been used as a restaurant but has now been vacant for several years.
“The proposals seek to convert the first floor to create two-bedroom flats, accessed via its own entrance (formerly the restaurant entrance) by arranging the existing ground floor door directly onto Westfield Street.”
He adds: “There are no external works proposed for the front elevations and so there will be no impact on the existing listed building, namely the Beechams clock tower and offices.”
Plans are under standard public consultation through Thursday, March 30.
A deadline for the decision has been set for May 4.
