A CHINESE restaurant in Lane End will be converted into flats.

Wycombe District Council has given permission to Maplehall Properties Ltd to convert the former Golden Palace Restaurant in Church Road.

The proposals are to put two bed flats on each level of the three storey building and demolish the single storey rear extension and build a three storey extension.

The application said the building was built in 1899, originally as a hotel, and is now known as Paradise Gardens Chinese restaurant.
