An 'ugly' workshop is set to be demolished to make way for a new home.

Developers named as Mr and Mrs Larkins have been given planning permission to knock down the building on Wisbech Road at Outwell, near Downham Market, and build a three-bedroom house on the site.

A planning statement said: "The site formerly housed the applicants' business, TL Productions, Embroiderers, Full Colour Digital, Sublimation and Screen Printing specialists."

It said the main building was believed to date back to the 19th century, adding: "To this have been added early and late 20th century two storey, single storey and first floor additions to create what can only be described as an ugly building.

"This site is suited for redevelopment rather than the continued use as a commercial building."

Permission was granted on condition work begins within three years and a survey be carried out to check for contamination in the site.
