AN empty industrial building in Moreton is set to be converted into a funeral directors after plans got the go ahead.

Cotswold District Council's planning committee approved W J Wright's application for the change of use of the former Matcon House, in London Road, at a meeting on June 11.

Planners gave thumbs up to the plans to convert the building, which was formerly used for a business or industrial purpose, despite six letters of objection and a petition.
