However this wasn’t without objection from local residents.
Several residents attended the virtual licensing meeting raising concerns over the close proximity to houses in a residental area and the site being opposite a school.
Dr Paul Brown spoke on behalf of six residents in the area. He said that it looked like work had already begun.
“Residents are already particularly concerned that this looks like a done deal,” he said.
Cllr Colin Elsbury also raised concerns over the application.
He said: “The building itself is not in the commercial area (of the town centre).
“It’s off the main street, it’s in an area that’s surrounded by houses and it’s certainly not in an industrial area.”
Despite the concerns, the plans were approved. Now the biggest hurdle that remains for the brewery is a planning application to refurbish the site.
