The go-ahead has been given for enforcement action to be taken against the owner of a city centre property which is being used as a flat without having planning permission.
City Hall officers have been told by councillors that they can take action, including potential prosecution, to stop people from living in two floors of a building off Prince of Wales Road.
Norwich City Council says the property in Cathedral Street, above Piccolos restaurant and Bootleggers off licence, has permission to be a social club, but not to be used as a home.
An application to switch to residential use was submitted to the council, but turned down.
Officers told the city council's planning committee that the property was still being used for residential purposes.

Officers said: 'The likelihood of noise disturbance to residents of the flat from the operation of business within the night-time economy and from road traffic is considered unacceptable and waste storage and collection arrangements would be inadequate.'
Councillors agreed to allow enforcement action.
