A former builder’s yard could be used to construct 97 new homes in Downham if planners give the green light.
Developer H C Moss wants to create an estate with open space on a 3.37 hectare site between Railway Road and Richmond Road.
The firm has now submitted a planning application to West Norfolk Council.
The development will include 19 affordable homes.
The application states: “The proposed residential development will increase the local population of Downham and this will sustain local shops and services as well as providing employees for local businesses.
“Local jobs will also be created within the development’s construction.
“The intention is to create a sustainable and inclusive development, integrated as sensitively as possible to minimise any impact on existing residents.
“Financial contributions towards public transport, education facilities, leisure facilities and local library services will be secured by legal agreement to meet demands of the development.”
The site had previously been used as a builder’s yard and included a number of workshops and sheds.
The developer is hoping to put up 19 affordable homes and 78 units to go on the housing market.
A total of 71 houses, which includes 15 affordable units with two, three and four bedrooms.
There will also be 26 bungalows, including four affordable units.
