The works would consist of internal and external alterations along with demolitions within the mill and silo buildings.

Features would also include the addition of ventilation stacks to the roofline of the silo building, replacement of its roof covering, alterations to the façade, extension and alterations at basement level, and alterations to the building gable for vehicular and services access. 

There would be a new vehicular entrance, car parking along with a delivery and vehicle turning area.
