Shell has been given the go-ahead to sell alcohol at its station on Creake Road in Fakenham.
The petrol station has been closed since August for a major refurbishment.
A redesign of the site will give space for more fuel pumps and a new shop, in which the company wants to sell alcohol.
North Norfolk District Council’s (NNDC) licensing sub-committee this week granted permission for the alcohol licence.
Peter Moore, who sits on NNDC’s licensing sub-committee, said Shell had addressed concerns raised by Norfolk police ahead of Wednesday’s meeting and that the police had withdrawn their objections to the licence.

He said: “The police objections had been addressed outside the meeting so we were able to approve it.
“There were no other objections so we had no reason not to approve it.”

As previously reported, licensing officer for Norfolk police Tony Grover had said they would remove part of its objection if guarantees were made over particular security measures. Other concerns previously made were that the sale of alcohol would lead to anti-social behaviour.
