West Norfolk Council has expanded its plan for a major new housing development at Lynnsport, which it hopes will be “future-proofed” for renewable energies.

Permission for 82 homes on the site of a redundant hockey pitch was granted in 2017, but the borough is now applying for permission from its own planning department for a revised plan of 96 homes.

The development, accessed from Aconite Road, would consist of six one-bedroom properties, 26 two-bedrooms, 42 three-bedrooms and 22 four-bedrooms.

All of the one-bedroom homes would be affordable, along with six of the two-bedrooms and two of the three-bedrooms.

At a Tuesday meeting of the council’s Lynn area consultative committee (KLAC), a council officer said electric vehicle facilities and ducting across the development would “future-proof” it against occupiers who may want to keep electric cars.

30 of the homes are also planned to have solar panels.

The homes would form part of a multi-phase development around the Lynnsport facilities, most of which has been completed.

The plan is expected to go before the council’s planning committee in January.
