THREE business premises in Victoria Road, Aldershot, are to be demolished to pave the way for redevelopment.

Planners have given the green light for the premises of Parkers estate agents, Sign-a-Rama and Anglian Home Improvements to be bulldozed.

The properties, which stand on the Frederick Road junction, are to be replaced by shops on the ground floor and 14 flats above.

In a report, Rushmoor Council planners were told that the town's regeneration would benefit from Clifton Ltd's scheme.

The scheme was approved on condition that the applicant pays a "sweetener" of £17,302 towards local open space improvements, and £3,500 for the implementation of the North East Hampshire Transportation Strategy.
