Plans to turn a former menswear shop into a heritage centre have moved a step closer.
Greenwoods closed four years ago troubling Great Yarmouth with another empty shop in a prominent position on the corner of Regent Road and King Street.
According to plans being debated by the development control committee the three storey building which dates from 1840 and was an early photographic studio will have two flats on the upper floors and possibly an artist's studio too.
The centre will also have an element of retail.
Officers say members should allow the scheme which they say "supports the retail character of the centre."
The re-use is tipped as conserving and enhancing the area.
The trust - which has a proven track record rescuing otherwise unwanted buildings - paid around £200,000 had been paid for the former shop, with a borough council loan.
