FORMER LLOYD’S BANK LOOKS SET TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO FAMILY HOME

A former bank on one of the Island’s high streets — which was open for close to a century — looks set to become a family home.

Prior approval is being sought by a Mr and Mrs Conkleton, from the Isle of Wight Council, to change the former Lloyd’s Bank on Sandown High Street into a home.

Agents for the couple, Macaire Associates, said the empty property readily and easily converts into a family home with little alteration, apart from the reinstallation of a staircase within the original space.

The property has been vacant for over 4 years since Lloyds closed 49 branches, including those in Bembridge, Cowes and Sandown, as people moved to online banking.

Before the branch on Sandown High Street closed it had been a Lloyds branch for 98 years.

To view the plans, 21/02169/3OPA, you can visit the council’s planning register. Comments can be submitted until 10th December.

Brilliant. One less empty building on the high street.
