outlets already nearby.

Police were concerned about young people gathering and causing anti social behaviour and litter.

They were also worried about cars leaving the rear of the premises, according to a report to North Norfolk Council's development control committee on Thursday.

Other objectors raised concerns about noise vandalism, impact on local residents and the need for more shops rather than takeaways.

The committee decided to give Mr Aygun planning permission subject to conditions relating to opening hours, ventilation and extraction of the takeaway and external lighting.
