A butcher shop in Norwich is to make way for a new fish and chip shop after permission was granted by council officers.
The new café and takeaway will be in the former Norwich Halal Butcher on Magdalen Street, with the decision to give it the green light made by officers at Norwich City Council on delegated authority.
The application was submitted in September on behalf of Babrul Matin, of a London-based company called Properteers Ltd, with the takeaway proposed to employ three full-time members of staff and two part-time.
It is proposed the takeaway, which will also operate as a café, will open seven days a week, from 10am until 11pm.
However, it will not be permitted to open until a ventilation system has been installed.
