Permission has been given for changes to tennis courts in three Norwich parks, but the most controversial proposal has yet to be decided.
Changes to courts in Harford Park, Lakenham Recreation Ground and Eaton Park have been approved by Norwich City Council's planning committee.
Permission was granted for hard courts to be refurbished and flood-lighting installed at Harford and Lakenham
Floodlighting would also be installed at three courts in Eaton Park.
A decision has yet to be made over a proposal to replace 10 grass courts at Heigham Park with three all-weather floodlit courts - a plan which has sparked some 60 objections.
