An 'unloved' property on Wisbech's historic North Brink is set to get a make-over that will 'enhance and maintain' its history for future generations.

A planning application has been submitted for the refurbishment of number 10 North Brink, Wisbech. (4434307)

Natasha Leeding of Leeding Projects, has applied for permission to carry out work to number 10.

In a heritage statement Ms Leeding explains: "The whole property is in need of full refurbishment as it is very tired, dirty and 'unloved', so all the refurbishments we want to make will enhance and maintain the history of the property and area for future generations."

She said the majority of the work is internal, but the front windows and door will be refurbished, the metal railings will be repainted and the front garden tidied.

"We are also refurbishing all the existing original features internally in the building, both in the communal areas and in the individual flats. We will be uncarpeting the groundfloor hallway to expose the original floor tiles."

The four-storey property was divided into 10 one-bedroom flats prior to the house being listed.

The sash windows to the front of the property will be repaired and re-painted, while all the PVC and aluminium windows put in by a previous owner will be removed and replaced with sash windows to match 'as best as possible' those at the front.

The aim is to paint the windows in Victorian white, a 'slightly richer white and more sympathetic to the building than the current pure brilliant white'.

She added: "I also want a slightly different colour to the doctors' surgery to show distinction between the properties, so people do not think it is still part of the surgery."

Ms Leeding concludes: "The proposal is to fully refurbish the property from top to bottom. We want to preserve the history of the property by saving and bringing life back to the original features that still exist. Whilst making it appropriate for a modern living as it is a very beautiful building."
