A former restaurant could be converted into a home if planners give the green light.
Bradley’s Wine Bar and Restaurant shut its doors for the final time in February after it had begun to lose money.
Now West Norfolk Council has received a planning application to convert the building into its original use as a home.
The change of us application proposes to create three bedrooms, a kitchen, two lounges, a dining room and cloakroom and garage.
The design and access statement says: “10 South Quay is one of a pair of properties that were constructed in the early 19th century originally as dwellings.
“Since then the building has had a number of uses. The property is currently vacant but its last use was that of a restaurant with flat above, the restaurant ceased trading some time ago, and was marked for in excess of 12 months but unfortunately could not find a suitable buyer.”
The 40-seater restaurant opened in August, 2005, and became popular with diners across the area.
But sadly trade began to dry up and publican Don Rutherford took the decision to close.
He told the Lynn News in February: “It was with a heavy heart that I took the decision to close the restaurant, but it was losing money every week.
“There was simply not enough trade to keep a restaurant of our calibre open.”
