A planning statement on behalf of Silver Fern Property management said works on the property, Number 14A,  would be "minimal" and "ultimately beneficial".

It concludes: The proposed change of use, and the works required to achieve it are considered to be not just of low impact but are beneficial to the listed building and conservation area alike.

"It will bring an otherwise redundant building back into to use in a manner that is commensurate with its historic design and also its modern setting and this can be achieved without loss or serious negative impact on its fabric or visual appearance."

The Tuesday Market is said to date back to 1529, when Henry VIII granted a charter to the town which permitted it to hold two markets a week. Markets were already held at Saturday Market Place.
