The group plans to turn part of the old shop, closed in 2005, into hobby workshops, leisure rooms and an office.

A spokesman for the shed said: “It will provide a much-needed facility in the town.

“It will not impinge on adjoining neighbours and the provision of the shed will bring a long-standing vacant building to use.”

Another part of the building accommodates a Co-op store.
