A new daycare centre for dogs could open on the coast as plans come before a local council.

Karley Richards, 40, who lives in Gorleston, is hoping to open the centre in an industrial unit on Sinclair Court in Bradwell.

The change-of-use bid states there would be no major alterations to the building, which is currently vacant, except for the provision of an outside area to allow for a secure dog run and internal areas for screening of dogs, as well as a quiet area for older canines.

Ms Richards, who works part-time, said: "I've just always been known as mad dog lady."

If the plans are approved the centre would open from 8am to 6pm, beginning next February.
