Plans submitted to turn former Sunderland hostel into 50 flats
A vacant former hostel building could be converted into flats.
Plans have been submitted to overhaul Camrex House, in Tatham Street, Sunderland.
The three-storey site in the Sunniside Conservation Area currently has 79 bedrooms with communal bathrooms.
However, under the proposals put forwards this would be reduced to 50 self-contained apartments.
Of these, 42 would be one-bedroom units and the remaining eight would be studios.
A decision on the plans is expected by late August.
