Controversial proposals to build hundreds of new homes in the North Lynn and Gaywood areas are due to be examined by a council committee later this week.

Members of West Norfolk Council’s ruling cabinet approved revised development plans for several sites around Marsh Lane and Lynnsport earlier this month.

The scheme is now due to be reviewed by the authority’s cabinet scrutiny committee when it meets at the council’s Chapel Street headquarters this Thursday.

Council leaders have already reversed proposals to build on a site known as Lynnsport 2, which includes the River Lane playing fields and open spaces popular with walkers, following local opposition.

They have also withdrawn a proposal to install bollards to prevent drivers from travelling up Marsh Lane towards the Wootton Road junction and insist they are listening to public concerns.

But opponents want the whole scheme to be reviewed again.
