A FORMER bank in Kineton looks set to be converted into a pharmacy and apartments, despite a number of objections.
The HSBC on Warwick Road closed last year, leaving the village without a bank.
Now Dudley Taylor Pharmacies has applied to turn the building into ‘Kineton Pharmacy’ along with a two-bedroom flat on the first floor and three bedroom duplex on second and third floors.
Nine residents objected to the proposals, saying parking will be an issue and that there is no need for a pharmacy in the town as there are already two dispensing doctors surgeries.
Coun Christopher Mills also says there would be inadequate parking for both the surgery staff and customers and those living in the flats.
Kineton Parish Council objected on the same grounds.
One letter of support was received.
Councillors on Stratford District Council’s planning committee are expected to approve the plans on Wednesday (October 4).
