An application for a 24-hour licence has been made by fast food giant McDonalds for one of its Norwich stores.
The application for the McDonalds restaurant and drive-through in Boundary Lane has been lodged but is being opposed by local residents and Hellesdon Parish Council.
The decision will now fall to a Broadland District Council licensing sub-committee to decide on Tuesday, July 2.
The Boundary Road McDonalds currently has a licence to serve between 5am and midnight, and until 2am on its busiest nights of Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The only McDonalds store in Norwich to have a 24-hour licence at the moment is the Longwater restaurant in Costessey, although the new McDonalds on the A47 at Brundall is also open 24 hours a day.

Hellesdon Parish Council's planning committee has lodged an objection to the application because of worries about public nuisance.

Gregory Britton, chairman of the planning committee, said: 'We had eight members of the public object to the application on the grounds of a lot of noise already coming from car radios, people shouting, car horns and what have you.
'So what we thought was that unless the district council can ensure that there will be no added nuisance, then they should turn it down.'
