ANOTHER Winchester office is poised to be converted into homes.
Landmark Estates has applied for permission to turn the 18th century Pennyfathing House on Chesil Street into four flats.
It is the latest in a controversial series of changes that has seen the number of offices decline because of the attraction of residential in Winchester.
Pennyfarthing House, recently an office for Sovereign Housing Association, was built as a house but has been offices decades.
It is close to Capitol House, which is being converted despite a last-ditch campaign by the business tenants.
The city council has changed its policy to make such changes harder but the restrictions are not set to start until later this year as the city council gave developers 12 months warning about the change.
