Revised plans to convert an historic pub in a Norfolk town centre into new shops and homes have been submitted.

Plans have been lodged to convert The Feathers in Market Place, North Walsham, into two shops and a one-bedroom flat with outbuildings, once used as a storage area, to be converted into two two-bedroom maisonettes.

A heritage statement submitted to North Norfolk District Council with the application, says: “The continued use of the pub in its present state would make the whole site unviable. The proposed conversion to shop units and the provision of housing at the rear would enable the site to be developed to the benefit of the listed building. By not getting consent it will mean the site will not be developed and the buildings will be subject to vandalism and lack of maintenance.”

The pub dates back to 1794 when it was called the Three Feathers, and closed in 2016.
