PLANS to convert a pub annexe to “modern and spacious” flats have been submitted to the council. 

Mrs E Wilson has submitted to Bucks Council a planning application for The Masons Arms, on Saffron Road, in High Wycombe.

Plans include the “conversion of [the] annexe building to The Sausage Tree pub into a separate dwelling containing two flats with associated external alterations”.

The Masons Arms was The Sausage Tree for a while, before changing its name back again.

The ground floor of the annexe or ‘outbuilding’ is currently used as storage for the pub, while the first floor is a two-bed flat.

The property was empty as of March this year.

The new “modern and spacious” one-bed flats are destined for the ‘housing market’, according to council documents.

Each will have access to a small courtyard garden, it adds.

Bucks Council received the application on March 30. It was validated on May 10.

The applicant is now ‘awaiting a decision’ from Bucks Council.
