Plans to turn a former police station into a primary school for nearly 500 children have been approved by Brighton and Hove City Council.

Hove police station, in Holland Road, was bought by the council after it closed earlier this year.

It will be converted to form a satellite to West Hove Junior School with 480 pupils and 38 full-time staff.

There will also be a two and three-storey extension to create a school hall.

Seven residents, who were worried about increased traffic and parking problems, objected to the conversion.

It was approved by the planning committee on Wednesday.
