The plans have been submitted to extend the building at 10 Market Street.

The building, which was formerly used as part of a nightclub, is currently vacant and is largely single storey.

A former Methodist church next to the building has since been converted into a cocktail bar.

The building on Market Street.

The application reads: “The apartments will comprise a mix of studio, one-bed and two-bed units arranged over three floors.

“Eight of the units will be formed by converting the existing floor space.

“The remaining four units will be provided through the construction of a roof-top intervention, delivering an additional two levels above the existing single storey structure.”

As part of the plans, 16 existing car park spaces to the rear of the building would remain for the residents.
