Work to build two petrol stations either side of the A47 in mid-Norfolk could finally start this year - 15 years after they were first planned.
Planning permission has been granted to Vince Somers to build a petrol station, 20-bedroom motel and restaurant on either side of the A47 at North Tuddenham.
Planning permission was first granted for petrol station developments 15 years ago by Roadside Developments.
The scheme had to be submitted by the latest owner of the site, Mr Somers, because a deadline given as part of the last planning permission ran out.

It was now hoped that this would be finally granted this year and that diggers could be on site before the end of 2009, he said.
