Many claimed the change would create parking problems on the streets, which would also affect local businesses.

King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council agreed on plans to convert Richmond House in Westgate into 13 flats.

Shaun Burrell, who owns nearby Owens DIY on Chapel Lane, was among those opposed to the plan.

The business owner said the move could mean the end of his company.

He said local residents were separating on his street and his delivery drivers were being prevented from passing.

Eastern Daily Press reported that Shaun said: “I already have some suppliers who are now refusing to deliver to my business because of access issues caused by parked cars or bins just standing in the lane before and after collection.” ”

Hunstanton City Councilor Paul Beal also had a problem with the plans.

Paul said the development was “nothing but overdevelopment in such a crowded area”.

There were eight contradictions in total.

Mike Ruston spoke out in favor of the plans.

He said: “There’s little difference between a hotel with no parking and apartments with no parking.”

The Sun Online has reached out to King’s Lynn and West Norfolk City Council for comment.
