Chain enters plans to extend hotel

A hotel chain has entered plans to extend its Thetford premises by 28 rooms.

Premier Inn in Brandon Road, just off the A11, will also have its restaurant extended, a house will be demolished and parking increased under the plans.

The firm submitted a planning application to Breckland Council on March 28.

William Nunn, leader of Breckland Council, said the extension, if accepted, would not interfere with the council’s plans for a hotel in the town centre.
