The site of a former working men’s club associated with Fakenham's printing press could be replaced with homes.
The site between 37-39 Oak Street is currently going through planning permission to change the building into three dwellings.
The application also includes the demolition of a single-storey lean-to to the west to provide the area for private gardens and associated parking, with each home provided with one space.
Until the 1980s the building was a working man’s club associated with the Fakenham Press. The existing club that used the building ceased trading in late 2015/early 2016 and has been unused ever since.
According to the access statement, the current building owner sought to privately sell or let the premises since early 2016 with no formal interest being expressed.
