PLANS to turn a Huddersfield town centre pub into flats could be given the go-ahead this week.
Developers Dream Pad Leisure have applied for permission to create the flats at Abrahams in Westgate.
Dream Pad Leisure, a division of Manchester company Dream Loft Leisure, wants to keep the ground floor of the pub as a shop and use the two upper floors to create 14 flats.
They are expected to be mainly one bedroom flats with timber floors and stainless steel kitchen appliances.
Prices will be in the £90,000 to £110,000 range.
Dream Pad Leisure, which bought the pub in January, has had to apply for listed building consent, as Abrahams is grade two listed.
Kirklees Council's Huddersfield area planning sub-committee will meet tomorrow to decide whether to hand the decision to officials.
Planning officers are backing the scheme, as long as steps are taken to preserve the listed features of the building.
Measures will also have to be taken to stop noise and smells from the shop affecting the flats.
It is not yet known what the retail unit will be used for.
Until January, Abrahams was owned by husband and wife team Roy and Sue Thurwell. They ran the pub for more than 20 years.
Under their ownership, Abrahams attracted all kinds of customers, but built up a particular reputation as a live music venue.
Every week it staged a wide variety of alternative bands, from big names to fledgling local talents.
It also played host to a regular acoustic night.
