PLANS to demolish a former police station in Keldregate to make way for housing have been given the go ahead.
Kirklees Council determined the proposal to build a pair of a single dwellings on the site.
Applicant Afran Afran submitted plans back in February to convert the land on the site of the former Deighton police station.
The building has been prone to vandalism since it closed in the 1990s, it was stated.
But the council planners raised concerns with regard to the lack of parking – at just one space per property.
Guidelines suggested that two parking spaces should be provided for new residential dwellings of this proposed size.
But a new application for just one house was re-submitted and approved giving the go-ahead for the site to developed at long last.
Kirklees Council Highways had raised concerns due to the close proximity of the mini roundabout and the junction of Keldregate and Deighton Road.
The revised scheme has ensured that there would be no overlooking or overshadowing of neighbouring properties.
