In December 2010 a proposal to build a 25,000 sq ft Morrisons supermarket and 269 car -park spaces on the site of the Cattle Market was lodged with Monmouthshire Council.
The Keep Abergavenny Livestock Market (KALM) group were strongly opposed to the plans. Abergavenny town council rejected plans to demolish the existing cattle market to make way for the Morrisons store at a meeting in May 2011. But in June Councillors on Monmouthshire County Council's planning committee agreed to demolish the livestock market to make way for a new supermarket.
