A barn near the north Norfolk coastal path will be the subject of a site visit after councillors discussed a plan to convert it into a seafood bar.

Members of the North Norfolk District Council development committee debated the application for the building on Cromer Road, West Runton, yesterday at the Holt Road offices in Cromer.

The proposal is to convert the barn on the site of a former brick kiln into an agricultural storage and seafood outlet with living accommodation on the first floor.

It has been submitted by Alison and Richard Matthews from West Runton. Mr Matthews has been a fisherman for the past 30 years and works off the Weybourne coast.

But the proposal, on a field on the North Sea side of the coast road between West and East Runton, has attracted 101 letters of objection and opposition from Runton Parish Council.

Opponents’ concerns include the proposal is “inappropriate development”, extra traffic leaving and joining the coast road could cause problems and the smell from seafood processing.

There were three letters of support.

If approved, the business would be open from mid March to the end of October and would sell freshly caught crab and lobsters to take away or eat on site.
