A slice of Italian cuisine is heading to the coast.

North Norfolk District Council has approved plans to see the former home of K’s, a 60s style American Diner in Wells, turned into a pizza restaurant and takeaway.

K’s on The Quay, closed last October and the building was put up for lease.

The application details the proposed works, including the installation of a flue for a gas Neapolitan-style pizza oven and the replacement of all existing restaurant signage.

It follows from the rubber stamping of a planning application to install signage at the building, with documents supporting both applications suggesting the business will be named ‘Flour’.

The document on the application’s page outlines the building's history, saying it opened for the first time in 1960 as Don's Snack Bar serving food to locals and visitors. In the 1980s it became K's Burger Bar.

The burger bar was damaged in the December 2013 tidal surge leading to it undergoing a complete refurbishment.

It opened its doors as K's in 2014 with a 60's style American diner.

Full approval was given to the site change on March 8.

All documents can be viewed on NNDC’s planning portal, under reference ADV/23/2704 and PF/23/2703
