A Great Yarmouth boxing club's hopes of moving to bigger premises face a possible body blow.
Kingfisher Amateur Boxing Club has outgrown its present building in St Peter's Plain after 10 years and has submitted plans to demolish it and build four town houses on the site.
However, the borough council's development control committee is being recommended to refuse the scheme at its meeting on Tuesday.
Although the site has existing planning permission for a residential development, officers feel the latest proposal for three-storey town houses would be out of keeping with the neighbouring two-storey homes.
