A national pub chain who lost a controversial bid to build four retail units in Diss has appealed the decision.
Marston's application to develop the land to the rear of the Thatcher's Needle pub on Park Road was rejected by South Norfolk Council's planning committee in March.
Diss is known for its small and independent shops and traders expressed their concerns and objections against the retail units and 189 car parking spaces.
The plans were objected by Diss Town Council and it was recommend to South Norfolk Council to refuse the application.
