The go-ahead has been given for three buildings in Eaton to be knocked down to make way for eight new homes, despite a string of objections.

Plans to demolish the buildings, behind the Grade II building which used to house Stephanie’s Cafe in Eaton Street, have been approved by members of Norwich City Council’s planning committee.

Developers have been granted approval to build eight new homes - a mix of one and two bed flats and houses on the site.

But there were seven letters of objection to the scheme, including a petition on behalf of 13 households.

They raised concerns over parking, loss of privacy, overshadowing and said, at 2.5 storeys, the building at the front, in Church Street, was too high.

That was a concern which was also raised by civic watchdog The Norwich Society, who said it was too large for the site, poorly proportioned and out of scale with nearby buildings.
