PLANS to demolish the former Bromsgrove Police Station and build a house for a school head teacher have been passed.

The former police station lies within the site of Bromsgrove School but has remained vacant since it was closed.

Bromsgrove School brought the buildings in 2004 and obtained a change of use permit in 2015 for additional teaching accommodation.

The former police social club is set to be demolished and two flats will be built at the rear of the five-bed house for school staff.

Currently the police station is linked to the school’s teaching facilities via an entrance link – this will be demolished and replaced in the new development.

The application, submitted by Delta Planning on behalf of Bromsgrove School states: “The three-storey detached dwelling will be accessed via a new private drive served by a dropped kerb footway crossover from The Crescent.

“The proposed driveway accommodates two car parking spaces and the garage has been designed to accommodate two additional car parking spaces.

“The proposals also include two 2-bed flats with under-croft parking which accommodates two parking spaces for each flat. The properties will be accessed via the existing one-way system off The Crescent.”


The new homes will also be fitted with electric charging points for vehicles.

Building work must start within three years of the permission being granted.
