Norwich City Council has given permission to the plan, which proposes to remove the station’s existing internal clock and replace it with a new one.

According to the planning documents, the clock will “look to replicate the timepiece on the outside of the station building, and by using the same business, the finish and maintenance will be of the equal standard”.

JC Decaux UK, which submitted the proposals, will have three years to make the changes before the permission expires.
