BROMSGROVE'S former Market Hall site could remain a car park for at least another 12 months after planning permission for it was extended until June 16, 2013.
The 'temporary' planning permission for the initial two years was granted back in 2010 after the market hall was controversially demolished.
Since then, a buyer for the site has been sought by Bromsgrove District Council.
But, on Monday (May 28), the site was back on a planning committee agenda and members gave the go ahead for the site to be a car park, if needs be, for another year.
A Bromsgrove District Council spokesperson said: “Developers have been invited to bring new retail and leisure development to this cornerstone site in the town centre, which is being marketed nationwide.
"Interest in the site has always been strong but due to commercial confidentiality we are not able to confirm any details at this stage.
“Until this process is completed, we will continue to maintain the whole area, including the George House building and the Hanover Street car park."
