TOWN & COUNTRY PLANNING The present use of the existing building is within D1 of the Use of Classes Order, as a place of worship. Such services ceased on April 2016. This would also permit other community uses as well as clinics, surgeries, crèches, day nurseries and consulting rooms.

Alternatively in light of its position within a residential part of the town it is considered that the property could be converted into an individual dwelling, subject to planning permission being granted.

Planning permission has been granted already by Bath and North East Somerset District Council for the erection of a new building to host 2 flats with associated car parking under Application No. 15/045/FUL dated 5 March 2015.

The existing property is not Listed nor is it situated within a Conservation Area.
