The green light is being recommended for a £4m business centre on the site of a former council depot in Grovehill Road.

The new building, replacing Beverley Business Centre, will be split between offices and light industrial uses and aims to provide employment for 85 full-time staff.

Applicants, East Riding Council, say it will be a "landmark" building offering "superior" facilities for new and existing businesses.

The car park will provide 121 spaces for building users and visitors, plus five dedicated disabled spaces adjacent to the main entrance, three spaces for electric cars and space for motorcycles.

Vehicles will enter from Beck View Road and exit onto Grovehill Road.

East Riding Council confirmed the cost of the business centre at £3.95m

The site was previously occupied by the County Council engineering depot and ambulance station.
