Plans to demolish a Great Yarmouth home furnishing shop and replace it with 14 homes have been approved.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council's development control committee has approved the plans which would see the Southtown Road building knocked down to make way for the houses.

The site, which is on the corner of Southtown Road and Gordon Road, is currently home to Choice Furnishings, having previously been the Anson Arms pub.

The same borough council planning meeting also approved a bid by the owner of Breydon Water Holiday Park at Butt Lane in Burgh Castle to allow caravan use all year round on a piece of land on the park.

At the moment the land owned by Park Resorts Ltd can not be used for caravans between January 7 and February 7
