Flats are to be created from a former pub in Bognor Regis.
The six properties will be formed in the empty Prince of Wales premises.
Arun District Council has given Bedford House Developments planning permission for the conversion to take place.
Simon Davis, a planning officer for the council, says in his report:
“It is considered that the proposal will result in the reuse of this currently vacant building and that this will have economic and social benefits which will outweigh any harm to the significance of the asset.”
The new flats at the Highfield Road site will consist of two two-bed properties and four with one bedroom.
