Plans have been lodged to convert a former village post office and cafe into holiday accommodation for tourists. 

The proposals would see the former Radley's Cafe in Lower Street, Salhouse, refurbished and turned into a one-bedroom holiday let.

It comes almost seven years after the business closed amid a bitter rivalry with neighbouring firm Prima Rosa. 

The dispute dates back more than five years, when Prima Rosa moved into 82A Lower Street, directly next door to Radley's in 82B, forging the rivalry between the two businesses.

The building previously also housed a shop and the village post office, but after owner Kerry Radley began experiencing a drop in trade she made the decision in 2017 to close the business down.

Numerous bids to find a new use for the site have been rejected by Broadland District Council, and the building has gone on to become as derelict eyesore.

A planning statement submitted alongside the latest plans claims: "Its former use ceased many years ago and the building has remained unused since.

"It has become unattractive and would benefit from the refurbishment the proposal will bring.

"Conversion to tourist accommodation will create employment opportunities and support local trades and facilities which rely to a significant degree on the holiday season."
