Plans have been submitted which could see a dessert spot transformed into a burger takeaway.

An application submitted to Breckland Council has requested a change of use by Kream Jar, at 24 Market Place, Dereham, to a hot food takeaway, for the sale of hot food where consumption is mostly undertaken off the premises.

Documents supporting the application include a statement from the applicant’s agent, which confirmed that there are no external changes to make to the appearance of the building and the only hot food that will be served for takeaway is to be ‘burgers’, adding: “I can only assume that chips made are included in this description.”

The document goes on to add that the proposed opening hours are Monday to Sunday 5pm to 11pm, and will be closed all day Tuesday.

No objections have been made about the plans, but environmental health officers have asked that: “Prior to any extraction system being brought into use the full details and specification should be submitted for approval.”

A decision on the plans is expected by January 22.

The application can be viewed on Breckland’s planning portal, looking up reference 3PL/2023/1124/F.
