A FORMER pub is set to be converted into flats and a detached house.

Plans have been submitted to Brighton and Hove City Council for the now closed Newmarket Arms in Bear Road.

Brighton-based Insite Planning want to turn the former boozer into three separate properties.

The proposal is for a one bedroom flat, a two bedroom maisonette and a three bedroom detached house.

The council’s planning committee is set to decide on the application on Tuesday October 21.
