Plans have been lodged for a new children's day care centre near Norwich.

Applicant Monika Uramowska is seeking change of use permission for 12 Corbet Avenue in Sprowston.

It is anticipated that the semi-detached building will cater for 25 to 30 children every day, along with four members of staff.

The proposals, submitted to Broadland District Council, seek permission to make internal alterations to the building's layout and install a toilet.

An outside yard will be turned into a soft play area, with a 1.8m-high timber fence installed on its left-hand side to shield the children from view.

The building currently has permission for office use and forms part of a group of existing retail units.

T J Goodwin and Associates, on behalf of the applicant, said: 'The business plan prepared by the applicants demonstrates they have sufficient expertise in the provision of day care for children.'
