The community has rallied around plans to breathe new life into a “horror” betting shop in Yatton.
Former High Street bookmaker Betfred is set to become the Note Warehouse, a private music school offering private lessons, as well as a cafe serving tea and cakes.
The plans were submitted by mezzo-soprano Hollie-Ann Bangham, who studied at the Royal Northern College of Music and performed throughout Europe.
Parish counselors said the new use would create a cultural center and “make excellent use of a fairly dilapidated empty store in the heart of the village.”
They were impressed with the soundproof module projects to isolate the noise of budding musicians.
The plans were supported by 25 people, who said the music school would be a “huge asset” and a “wonderful idea”.
A spokesperson for the Yatton Music Society said: “There is an appetite for quality live local music and the society has over 100 members, the proposed music school will create a pool of budding musicians who could choose from. to pursue a professional career in the music industry. “
The new business is expected to create two full-time and eight part-time jobs. The 12 parking spaces will be retained.
The request was approved this week by the North Somerset Council.
