Developers have submitted a second planning application to build homes near Lynn’s Reffley estate.

Boyer Investments wants to construct 81 homes along with a bridge and access road on land off Russett Close.

An earlier application to build 95 homes on the site was thrown out by West Norfolk Council’s planning committee at a meeting in March.

Angry residents objected to the plans after the application proposed to use the close’s amenity area to create an access into the development area.

The application’s design and access statement says: “The previous application for development of this site was dismissed at appeal for the single reason that replacement, accessible, open space was not provided for that which would be lost due to the proposed access from Russett Close.

“This application addresses the reason for refusal by providing replacement open space immediately within the site.

“This replacement open space will be easily accessible to residents from Russett Close.”

A cycle and pedestrian route will be provided by the Gaywood River.

The main part of the site has previously had outline planning permission for up to 95 homes, which was first granted in March 2008 and extended until July this year.
