Plans to demolish an old police station in Powys and build retirement flats in its place have been unveiled.
Plans are to demolish the old police station in Brecon
Local business leaders said the 1960s building in Brecon town centre had become "a bit of an eyesore" since the police moved to a new station in 2005.
Pegasus Retirement Homes Plc will submit a planning application with Brecon Beacons National Park soon.
A spokeswoman said an exhibition of its proposals on Tuesday had brought a "positive" response from local people.
Chris Shearman, of Brecon Chamber of Trade and Commerce, said the building had become a "bit of an eyesore".
"There have been all sorts of suggestions such as turning it into a youth centre or building social housing on the site," he added.
"There were also plans to extend the town supermarket next door to encompass the site, but of all the suggestions and plans this is probably the best idea."
Plans are to build 37 one and two-bedroom apartments, said Pegasus Retirement Homes.
