A RUN-DOWN old building could soon be home to a podiatry business after Rockhampton Regional Council approved a development application for the site.

The material change of use permit from low-medium density residential to health care services on Campbell St was considered in the planning and regulatory committee meeting this morning.

Speaking after the meeting, Councillor Ellen Smith described it as a "great decision".

"It's lovely to see that old building being re-used," she said.

"It was used as a commercial premise a long time ago.

"It's been sitting vacant for some time."

According to council documents, the proposed layout includes three treatment rooms, a reception area, kitchen and toilet facilities.

The building's existing awning will be maintained and car parking spaces will remain on Campbell St.
