A supporting statement lodged with the application said it was not fit for modern day office requirements and did not have a level access.

There was also low market demand for rental offices with so many people now working from home.

Redan also noted there was demand for affordable rented accommodation in the heart of the High Street area.

The building was previously used as residential accommodation and the developer said it is keen to refurbish and convert the building “that best suits the needs of the local community.”Councillors and officers will consider the application in due course.
