An empty unit opposite Norwich Waterfront could be turned into a sports therapy clinic, after attempts to attract a supermarket to use it faltered.
NPS Group, which has been marketing the property on behalf of the city council, has put forward the plans for the unit on King Street, which is below a development of new flats.
When plans for the development were originally approved, the ground floor was intended to be used for either shop, workshop or studio use.
However, an application has now been lodged to use it as a sports therapy clinic, which would operate between 6am and 10pm daily.
The application's design and access statement, prepared by NPS Group, says: '144A King Street has been actively marketed since January 2018 with little interest.
'It has been advertised via multiple platforms and local and national businesses, including supermarket chains have been approached but have not been sufficiently interested to make an offer to lease the unit.
'From experience, we strongly believe having a business actively operating from this unit will increase interest in the other vacant units'
