Planning permission has been granted to turn a former shop in Long Stratton into a café.

South Norfolk Council's south and east planning committee agreed yesterday that the ground floor of Kestrel House, in The Street, could be converted.

Applicant Tim Wood hopes to open a delicatessen, coffee and sandwich bar, as well as insert a new window, extraction venting and illuminated signs.

Planning officers had recommended the plans for approval subject to conditions restricting the amount of illumination and the opening hours to 7am to 8pm daily.

Councillor Alison Thomas, who represents the Stratton ward, said: “I would be very pleased to welcome another business into Long Stratton.

“We had two cafes running quiet happily together and one closed not because of competition, but I believe due to a dispute with the landlord. I think the town has missed the other café and the competition.”
