End of road for pub
Another former Norwich pub will make way for housing after city councillors gave the go-ahead to plans to turn it into flats.
The former James I pub in Drayton Road, Mile Cross, has been shut for more than three years and developers yesterday secured permission for it to make way so five new homes can be built.
Applicants P & S Waterfield had asked Norwich City Council for permission to part demolish the existing pub, which dates back to the 19th Century, to convert it to provide two four-bed homes and two one-bed flats.
The developers, who have already carried out some demolition work because it was in such a poor state of repair, also asked for permission to build a new three-bed home at the back of the site.
Council officers said it was not a listed building and not an identified historic public house and there were other pubs nearby.
