A £100m scheme to rejuvenate Norwich's Anglia Square has taken a step forward after developers submitted plans for approval.

It is hoped the overhaul of the rundown area north of the city centre will get the green light by spring, and developers want to start work in the summer.

News that the planning application has been submitted to Norwich City Council has been welcomed by city leaders, who say they are delighted that, after years of neglect and uncertainty, the future of the area looks bright.

Developer Centenary Ashcroft wants to transform the 1960s shopping centre into an attractive piazza including a new supermarket, apartments, restaurants and cafés. The firm wants to attract one of the "big five" super-market chains and hopes this would boost plans for the north of the city, which the city council has identified as a priority regeneration area.
