Aylsham Town Council and homeowners object to old police station development
A former police station in Aylsham could be knocked down and transformed into a convenience store and flats if plans are approved.
An application has been lodged with Broadland District Council for the old station in Gashouse Hill, which was formerly used by Norfolk County Council.
But Aylsham Town Council and surrounding homeowners have objected to the proposal, highlighting traffic worries, anti-social delivery times and design worries.
The developers say the building has been designed as practically as efficiently as possible.
Neighbouring homeowner Tim Foster said he was concerned about road safety issues, and said the new design was out-of-keeping with the area.
