A former Leicester pub which called last orders more than a decade ago is to be turned into housing.

Permission has been granted for the Tudor Hotel, at the corner of Tudor Road and Tewkesbury Street in Newfoundpool, to become 10 flats.

The pub closed in 2013, according to planning documents.

Now, the building, whose ornate red brickwork dates back to 1900, will become a mix of studio, single and two-bedroom flats.

An outbuilding previously used for storage will also be turned into a self-contained one-bed flat.

In its application, agent Design Studio Architects wrote: "A mix of studios as well as one and two bedroom flats, alongside associated landscaping, has been designed.

"Given the demand for small families and single person residencies in Leicester, it was deemed appropriate that the site was developed into residential."
