Cllr Melanie Baker said the application had proved “a very emotive issue”.
“A building is not just bricks and mortar,” he said.
“It holds historical information and values.
“My greatest concern is that once it’s gone, it’s gone.
“I for one feel I cannot be part of destroying part of our heritage.”
Cllr Clive Smith said he had initially been sceptical about the value of the shed and concerns raised by conservation groups in the town, including the Malvern Civic Society, but after looking more closely at the issue had come to understand why people were upset about the plans.
