A second public inquiry into a controversial housing development in Gayton has been scheduled to take place in the new year.

West Norfolk Council officials took legal action earlier this year after a government planning inspector overturned its decision to block proposals for up to 50 homes off St Nicholas Close.

The authority argued the decision undermined long-standing planning policies, though the inspector suggested there would only be a "technical" breach that would not cause significant harm.

The inspector's ruling was itself quashed after the government department responsible for planning issues decided not to contest the case.

A new hearing is now scheduled to start on February 26 at the South Lynn Community Centre. The inquiry is expected to last four days.
