The documents state that experts carried out an asbestos survey in October.

That revealed low-risk level Chrysolite in the floor tiles of the hall and kitchen.

"Asbestos will be removed by a suitably-licenced contractor," the documents add.

Demolition work is set to start on Monday, February 2, and end on Friday, March 30.

It is not yet known how the site will be restored.
