A market town cafe could be replaced with a pizza takeaway.

The new pizza place has submitted plans to take over at 9 Norwich Road in Fakenham, which is home to Cafe Scrumptious.

The cafe was put up for sale earlier this month when its owner, Glenys Twite, decided to take a step back from the business.

The owner of the 50-seater cafe, which specialised in home-cooked breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, has decided to spend more time with her family and is taking semi-retirement.

The application proposal is for a takeaway that sells mostly pizza, open from 11am to 11 pm every day, including bank holidays.

The plan said there would be no external work, apart from an extraction flue that installed behind the front access arch.

Discussions are still ongoing.
