An extended play area is being proposed for a Great Yarmouth school that is said to occupy a very restricted space.

Norfolk County Council has submitted a planning bid to expand a hard play area for St George's Primary and Nursery School by knocking down a neighbouring former restaurant at 59-61 St Peter's Road.

The county council has sent in the planning application to Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

Planning documents say the enlarged hard play area 'will not materially increase any noise associated with education use'.

The design of the extended play area 'will seek to reference existing features linked to the school frontage'.

The planning report concludes: 'The proposal will deliver an enlargement to a constrained school site.

'The design of boundary treatment is sensitive to the context and the change will not harm residential amenity.'
