A former shop on the busy A149 coast road could become a holiday let.

Glenn Turner has applied for planning permission to change the use of the ground floor of the property close to the RSPB reserve and Briarfields Hotel at Titchwell, near Hunstanton.

In Focus, at May Cottage, sold birdwatching equipment before it closed down some years ago.

Now plans have been submitted for a self-contained holiday let in former retail space on the ground floor next to the main road.

Planning papers say the change would be "de-minimis" because the 27m sq shop area was previously used as a house. 

The property had previously been offered for rent for £7,500 a year.

A decision is expected from West Norfolk Council later this year.
