Plans to convert a village “eyesore” into dozens of new homes are back before borough councillors next week.
Outline proposals for up to 32 properties and office units on the former Granaries site, Station Road, Docking, are being recommended for approval at West Norfolk Council’s planning committee meeting on Monday.
The plans, submitted by First County Trust, were originally approved back in January this year, subject to the completion of a legal agreement within three months.
The agreement was to secure the delivery of affordable housing, as well as a local play area and financial contributions for education, fire service and libraries.
However, a third party with interest in the land refused to sign the agreement and the deadline was missed.
Now the party is no longer involved with the land, and the plans can move forward.
Planning officials are once again recommending the committee approve the proposals subject to the agreement being completed within a new three month timescale.
The project is supported by parish councillors, who said the site had become “a village eyesore” having been left vacant for many years.
