Abandoned Dewsbury Fire Station looks set to be flattened to make way for a convenience store.
The station in Huddersfield Road, built in 1964, was mothballed by West Yorkshire Fire Service in 2015.
Batley Fire Station was also closed around the same time and fire crews joined forces to move to a new, purpose-built station at Carlton Road, off Bradford Road, between the neighbouring towns.
The operator of the store has not been revealed but the drawings suggest it could be one of the major supermarket chains.
Plans show the shop would be built along the main road with dozens of parking spaces behind.
The applicant says 15 jobs could be created along with the extra work for the construction industry.
The fire station has been boarded up with huge boulders placed in front of the garage doors since it was officially closed in August last year.
The site of the former Batley Fire Station site at Carlinghow Lane has also been earmarked for housing with outline planning permission granted for 11 homes.
The former Dewsbury station celebrated 50 years in 2014 and at its height was crewed by 72 firemen.
The merger of stations in North Kirklees last year was echoed in Calderdale where Brighouse and Elland stations closed to be replaced by a brand new facility at Clough Lane, Rastrick, close to the M62.
