Permission has been granted to convert an office in Wakefield city centre into a taxi headquarters.

The plans refer to an address on Cheapside off Westgate.

The plans were given the go-ahead but eight objections were received, including concerns over the number of taxi ranks in the city and the narrowness of Cheapside.

They said the area was already congested.
