A LETTING agent in the town has installed a roller shutter after vandals damaged the front window.
Belvoir Lettings, in Newland Street, introduced the security measure following advice from police.
The firm has now submitted a planning application for the shutter to Kettering Council.
Bosses said they were unaware they needed approval for the shutter before installing it.
The shop lies in the town’s conservation area.
A decision is expected on the application this month.
