Plans for a new Indian takeaway in a Norfolk village have been rejected over fears of a 'fat burg' forming in the surrounding sewage network. 

Juber Ahmed made a bid to open the business in Kenninghall, near Diss, at 2 Market Place, the former home of the Twin Teapots cafe. 

The plans were met with objections from locals and the parish council, which raised concerns about the opening hours of the takeaway and its environmental impact. 

Mr Ahmed hoped to convert the vacant tea room into a takeaway which would be open between 5pm and 11pm seven days a week.

Kenninghall Parish Council said: "We feel these hours are unacceptable in terms of noise for local residents and volume of business traffic from outside the village. Customers will predominantly use cars which will create additional parking issues and noise.

"The nearest residents are young families and elderly and the noise of such a business operating solely in the evening will have a detrimental effect on the wellbeing of these residents, especially during the school week."

It also urged Breckland Council to reject the plans due to concerns over waste disposal, and the possibility of a "fat burg" forming in the sewage network. 

"There is concern that the nature of a takeaway will put a heavy burden on this facility and have a major environmental impact on the surrounding area," the council added.

Four further objections were received from members of the public and Mr Ahmed was not granted permission for the development.

Breckland Council said: "The business would impact the residential amenities of surrounding properties by virtue of potential adverse odour, noise, hours of operation, waste storage and other forms of general disturbance which would be detrimental to the overall quality of life for locals."
