The scheme was intended to improve circulation in the building while allowing improved access to a post office accommodated in a lean-to at the front and rearrangements at first-floor level. The inspector expressed concern that it would involve the removal of a section of a clay wall, a surviving remnant of a tradition once widespread in the area. In his opinion, the works were unnecessary and could have the effect of setting an undesirable precedent.
