Plans to bring Norwich's former Toys R Us store back into use have been delayed over highways issues.

Home Bargains is hoping to open in Cathedral Retail Park, in Westwick Street, but Norfolk County Council's highways team says a number of changes must be made to its plans for the surrounding roads.

It has also asked for permission to serve food and drink on the premises between 8am and 9pm on weekends and bank holidays.

The discount retailer has now asked for Norwich City Council's decision deadline for plans to be extended from October 9 to October 16 in order to amend its plans to fit the highways team's amendments.

County council officials have asked Home Bargains to install electric vehicle charging points at on-site car parking before work on the store begins, while also requiring it to provide detailed drawings for off-site highway improvement works.

It also said off-site highway works should be completed before Home Bargains opens.

Home Bargains bosses have agreed to make changes to its application and it is now hoped a decision will be reached by the extended date of Monday, October 16.
