A decision over whether a new Asda superstore can be built in Norwich will be made by city councillors today.
Norwich City Council's planning committee will discuss the plans at City Hall this morning, less than three months after the same proposal was rejected by councillors.

The plans for the 5,796 sq m Asda superstore also include a gym, pub, community centre, 334-space car park and other shops at the derelict site on Hall Road.
The plans which will be discussed are identical to those which were rejected by the committee in September, when the application was turned down by five votes to four.
But Asda lodged the same plans again and councillors will meet from 10am to decide whether the scheme can go ahead. Officers are, once again, recommending approval.
