Revised plans to build 95 new homes in Lynn have been submitted to council officials.

London-based Boyer Investments wants to develop a parcel of land which is off Russett Close on the Reffley Estate.

The firm has submitted an application to West Norfolk Council to put up the homes, an access road along with cycle routes.

Although the company already has permission to put up 95 homes on the two hectare site, the new application uses an alternative access route from Russett Close.

Bosses say that will mean the development can be finished more quickly.

Managing director Isabel Boyer said: “We’re committed to helping King’s Lynn to meet its housing needs and to investing in services for the area.

“We have had to change our plans for this development as access to the south relied upon the construction of a bridge over the Gaywood River. We are not responsible for building the bridge and there have been delays on the project that are outside our control.”

She added: “Russett Close has been chosen as it is not only wider than the road to the south of the Gaywood River and so better able to deal with additional traffic.

“We are keen to keep local residents informed about our plans and have written to homes in the Russett Close area explaining the position.”

The developer has not submitted details of the types of houses to be built on the site, but has stated that 15 per cent of them should be classed as affordable.
