A FOOTPATH could be moved to allow two offices to be linked, under new plans by an offshore group hoping to expand its enterprise in the area.
Fugro Alluvial Offshore Ltd have submitted a planning application to remove the footpath, which runs between the offices on Morton Peto Road in Great Yarmouth in the Gapton Hall Industrial Estate.
As part of the application, the space would then be used as employment land to connect one long-owned office to another, recently purchased, office on the junction with Edison Way, and the path diverted around the newly-joined units.
Neil Aitchison, a surveyor acting for the company, which specialises in marine site investigations, said they would create a new footpath with improved surfacing and good visibility from the street.
It is estimated that, if approval were granted, work might not start for another six to nine months due to legal procedures that would have to be followed in relation to the moving of the pathway.
Mr Aitchison added: “We're trying to be as open as possible and take in people's concerns if they have any.
