Part of Seaton's police station could be returned to residential use if plans are given the green light.
If approved, a change-of-use application would see number 76 and 78 Queen Street ‘split’, with the former turned into a house and the latter retained by police.
Devon and Cornwall Constabulary own number 76 and lease number 78.
The application said: “Devon and Cornwall Police are looking to dispose of this asset [number 76] whilst retaining a police presence in Seaton from the accommodation at 78.”
The scheme also proposes a flat-roofed extension to the rear be removed to make way for a garden, returning the property to its original appearance.
The closure of Seaton Police Station was announced in October 2015 - it was one of 34 across Devon and Cornwall being shut to help the force make savings of up to £29million.
However, in 2017, it was announced the station would stay put but be divided.
