Cllr Jeffree added: “The site has been vacant for a very long time and will never come back into use as a bus garage, and has deteriorated, leaving it open to becoming a focus for anti-social behaviour.

“It is important for the community to now see it evolve and put to a new use, becoming a pleasant place where people can settle and make their homes.”
