A bin storage area could become a focal point for Great Yarmouth after plans were submitted to the borough council to turn it into a new shop or cafe.

The application for 12 King Street is on the corner of Regent Road and Theatre Plain, behind the Clarks shoe shop and opposite Costa Coffee.

A artists' impression visualisation shows a new frontage that would create a corner unit which would be prominent on the street and be the first thing many visitors saw when walking up from the seafront.

Planning permission is needed to make alterations to the Theatre Plain side which includes a new glazed shop front and doors to enclose the colonnaded area which is currently used to store waste bins.

The 370sq.metres (nearly 4,000sq.ft) space could provide a new cafe space or a shop in the town centre.
