DM/2023/00310 Advertisement Consent: We are hoping to add an awning to the front of the shop. The area it will cover is used as an outdoor seating area in the summer so it will provide much needed shade for this. It will act to make us more visible from either end of the street. Most importantly, however, it will provide shade to the large windows at the front of the shop. We lost quite a lot of stock in the heat last summer as the large windows create a greenhouse affect in the main shop area. The awning will be removable, so can be taken off from the building should we leave the building, it is retractable so will only be used between certain hours and in certain weather. There are other buildings with these types of awnings, within the town and even on our street. They will be kept in keeping with the building. 9 Market Street, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, NP7 5SD.  https://planningonline.monmouthshire.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=documents&keyVal=RQIZP4KYGN800
