Fight to save Norwich ‘lifeline’ reaches City Hall

A petition calling for a community lifeline to be saved has been handed to councillors tonight.

West Earlham Mini Market, in Wilberforce Road, could be knocked down to allow 14 flats to be built.

Dennis Thompson, who lives near the shop, handed in the petition containing 604 signatures during a Norwich City Council cabinet meeting.

He was joined by fellow residents and Bowthorpe county councillor Paul Wells.

The council says a new shop is being considered under proposals for the site.
