Plans to convert a large four-storey former bingo hall in South Shields into 43 apartments and four commercial units have been approved after an inspector rejected concerns over parking and overdevelopment.

The building, located within the South Tyneside district shopping area, has an existing car park of 44 spaces. The proposal would involve rearranging the existing car park to provide 36 spaces, and adding a further 21 spaces inside the building to be accessed by a lift. The appellant stated that this would provide one space for each flat, plus a further 14 for visitors.
