A former town centre cafe could reopen as a nail bar - if planners give the go-ahead.

The proposal would see the conversion of a premises on Regent Street in Great Yarmouth.

Until last summer the building had served as Mocha, a coffee and cake shop which relocated last September to a next-door building formerly occupied by Coleman Opticians. The planning application, submitted to Great Yarmouth Borough Council, states that a company called USA Nails proposes changing to use of the building from cafe to nail bar. According to the application there would be three full-time and one part-time employees, while the business would open from 9am to 6pm on Monday until Saturday.
