A former police station could be knocked down and replaced by flats.
Norfolk police have applied for outline permission to build 10 one and two-bedroom flats on the site of the former North Lynn station on Mayflower Avenue, in King's Lynn.
The current single storey building would be replaced by a two and three storey block with parking.
In its design and access statement, Norfolk Constabulary says: 'The police service would not be degraded in the loccality and the loss of the building would not therefore result in the loss of the police service as a community facility in the locality.'
It concludes the plans are a 'sustainable and viable use' for the site.
