Plans to transform a tired social club into flats with a food outlet on the ground floor have been given the green light.
Clevedon's Triangle Club will be rejuvenated after being left to crumble.
But, after North Somerset Council backed plans from developer 3SIXTY Real Estate, thousands of pounds are set to be put into the building.
3SIXTY purchased the club for £225,000 and has permission to transform it into a modern, 'attractive' café and living space.
The company will carry out a minor facelift to the exterior while in-keeping with its original appearance and convert the first floor into four flats and the downstairs into a café. The flats will go up for sale for around £160,000.
Director Adam Booth said: "It is great news for the building itself and the local area, that this landmark property will be rejuvenated and put to a new use ensuring the vibrancy of the high street for years to come.
"We will be looking to undertake the first phase of works in the coming months to facilitate a regional café/bar operator taking-up residency of the ground floor commercial thereafter.
"The uppers will be converted to contemporary living accommodation towards the end of the year.
"This is a good result all round and we would like to acknowledge the planning officer's positive engagement throughout the planning process, rather than the usual last-minute reasons to try to reject a scheme.
"We would also like to acknowledge Clevedon BID's proactive and supportive approach to the building and its future intentions, proving that they have a clear vision of what is required to make Clevedon a thriving success going forward.
"The whole experience has been refreshing and hopefully reflects North Somerset and Clevedon in particular, as a place where things can get done."
The social club still owns 3 The Triangle, which has been closed for a year, and is working with the developers to get its own entrance so it may reopen.
3SIXTY once purchased and received planning permission to transform Campbell's Landing into luxury flats.
However after the downturn in the market, it sold on the site.
The business taking over the Triangle Club's downstairs space has yet to be revealed.
