A NEW planning application has been drawn up seeking to turn a former garage premises into two semi-detached homes.

Proposals have been submitted to demolish the former car service station at 196 Ormskirk Road, Rainford to make way for two houses.

The plans for the now empty vehicle service and repairs garage were received by St Helens Council and are on public consultation until Tuesday, October 15.

Plans associated parking and amenity space.

A previous planning application to convert the car garage into a flooring showroom, along with a food deli and apartments were withdrawn in August.
