“The property is in need of complete refurbishment and may lend itself to alternative uses, subject to planning permission.

“One of the plus points is that Port Street forms part of the B4035 running east from Bridge Street and the town centre and is one of the main pedestrian and car routes into the town centre.

“Number 56 lies on the south side of the street between its junctions with Burford Road and Shor Street, an established trading location with nearby occupiers including Ladbrokes and numerous independent traders.”
