A FORMER bank in York could be turned into two new homes.

A planning application has been sent to City of York Council, seeking permission to convert the building which once housed the NatWest branch in East Parade, Heworth, into two four-bedroom houses.

The site, which lies in a conservation area, was originally two terraced houses and Millgarth Developments said it would include a frontage similar to the building’s original appearance.

Council planners are expected to decide on the application in April.
