The top of a Norwich city centre office block, which has stood vacant for more than five years, could be turned into a restaurant.
Y Construction, the owners of Rose Lane Business Centre, had asked Norwich City Council for permission to change the use of the fifth floor of the building into a restaurant.
Officers at City Hall have given the proposal the go-ahead, with the restaurant open to the public between 7am and midnight.
The business centre, built in the early 1970s, was formerly used by Aviva, but has long stood empty.
But Y Construction is looking to breathe new life into the property.

The developers have already got permission for a gym and nursery in the building.
