Plans have been submitted to turn a modest Romford shop and dwelling into an expansive workspace with a five-bedroom home on top. 

The proposals intend to drastically extend the Mawney Road property, adding a double-storey side extension plus a part single, part double rear extension. 

Currently comprised of a shop area, three rooms and a toilet, applicant Avinash Tiwari has asked Havering Council for permission to reimagine the ground floor and turn it into a space with an office, meeting room, three "cabins", two toilets, a pantry, a reception and workstations. 

The first floor would also undergo major amendments. Under the plans, its two bedrooms, one bathroom and kitchen/dining area would be reworked into five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living/dining area, and a kitchen. 

While it is currently unclear what business will be situated in the ground floor, it is not intended to continue as a shop.  

Avinash Tiwari is noted in the application documents with the companies Tewari Investments Limited and Scientific Designs, which also contributed to the plans. 

Mr Tiwari was approached for comment.
