The replacement of roof tiles at Hove Library to ensure waterproofing is one of several planning applications submitted to Brighton and Hove City Council in the last two weeks.

The list includes applications that will affect listed buildings and conservation areas, as well as other applications.

One of the applications, submitted in the week ending July 23, is for Hove Central Library, which is a listed building, on Church Road.

This application involves the removal of an existing north elevation parapet gutter lining and the replacement of roof tiles like for like.

Waterproofing works to the east elevation roof are also planned, along with the removal and replacement of existing lead flashings and render flashing.

Additionally, the application includes the removal of promenade tiles and the application of a dura-coat restoration waterproofing system to the roof.

Another application is for 15 Victoria Terrace, Hove.

The proposed change of use for the basement flat, from commercial to residential, includes the addition of a new side door access.

In Kemp Town, an application has been made for 5 St Johns Mews on Bristol Road.

The proposed internal alterations include the removal of stud walls, installation of banisters handrails and spindles, bathroom and kitchen replacement, rewire and replumb, and replacement of French doors.

Two separate applications have been made for Flat 1, 7 Lewes Crescent in Brighton.

The first application is for the replacement of sash windows with double-glazed sash windows.

The second application includes internal alterations to renovate the kitchen, bathroom, and ensuite, as well as the replacement of sash windows with double-glazed sash windows.

In terms of other applications, one application in Hove seeks approval for the installation of a safety rail and parapet wall to an existing rear flat roof at 37B Compton Avenue.

Another application in West Hill & North Laine aims to remove conditions of a previous planning permission for land to the east of The Sycamores on Bath Street.

In the week ending August 6, an application to turn a GP surgery into a home was submitted. Allied Medical Practice, in Hertford Road in Brighton, which employs four full-time staff and six part-time staff, will be moving to a different site soon.

There are plans to turn its current building into a four-bedroom home.

The application reads: "This is to confirm that Allied Medical Practice will be moving in November 2023 to a new fit-for-purpose NHS medical centre on the Preston Barracks development.

"The scheme is fully backed by the NHS/BHCC and will provide fully compliant and sustainable medical accommodation. The scheme will also allow the practice to expand its patient list to meet current and future demands. The current surgery is too small to meet new required patient numbers and as it was originally a C3 house does not have the desired layout and accessibility for all customer groups."
