The former Methodist church was established on this site in 1898, although the present church building dates from 1935 as the original was destroyed by fire. A three storey residence already on the site dating from 1830 or thereabouts, was retained and extended in 1898 when the present schoolroom was added.

The site has a frontage of 35m to Station Road and average depth of 45m and is set back with a shallow wall, areas of grass and shrub, whilst the town car park abuts immediately to the rear (south).

The property is not Listed but does fall within a Conservation Area and it is believed that any significant changes to its external appearance would be resisted by the planning authority.

The present use of the building is within D1 of the Used Classes Order as a place of worship which would also permit other community uses such as clinics, surgeries, creches, day nurseries and consulting rooms.

Alternatively, given its location within a residential area of the town, it is considered that the property would be suitable for conversion to a single residential property or a residential property occupied in parts. Planning permission would be required for any such change of use.

Interested parties should address any specific enquiries to the planning authority.
