A snooker club in Weston can be demolished to make way for around nine homes.
North Somerset Council has approved an outline planning application for Frames Snooker Centre, in Sunnyside Road, to be knocked down.
Nine homes can be built in its place, although the design and size of the buildings will be determined at a later date with another planning application.
However, a council officer believes more houses should be built to ‘optimise the potential of the site’.
The council employee added: “The agent has produced information to demonstrate there are numerous alternative gym and snooker hall facilities in the immediate vicinity and the town centre is therefore well served with such facilities.”
The council believes there is enough room for parking spaces.
It also said people living in Sunnyside Road would not be exposed to excessive noise from nearby businesses, as long as an acoustic fence was installed.
