Browston Hall near Belton submitted plans to convert its former indoor bowls green into a classic car sales showroom earlier this year.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council has now approved the proposals at the 23-acre site but it is not known when work will start.

The bowls club at Browston Hall closed nearly two years ago but the resort still offers guests a range of sporting activities including golf and tennis.

The hall itself is a Grade II listed house and provides restaurant facilities and residential accommodation.

The complex is open year-round and hosts events including weddings and private functions.
