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.
