Plans have gone into build 40 homes in Gayton.

The Gayton Estate wants to demolish old farm buildings to make way for a new development on land at Manor Farm, Back Street, Gayton.

This application site is close to the proposed location for the Gayton Primary School.

Plans have already been announced to build a £4.5 million new school on the corner of Back Street and Winch Road.

The application, which has been lodged with West Norfolk Council, states that eight of the units would be classed as affordable housing plus there will be some public open space.

The application’s planning statement says: “The applicant at this stage is seeking a flexible outline planning consent for 40 dwellings in order to be able to respond to market requirements for the type and size of dwellings to be constructed on the site, should planning permission be granted. A mix of housing types and sizes is to be proposed on the site.”

During a public meeting held in November, residents have said they were supportive of plans to move the school but were against the proposed location.

Under the current proposals, the new school would have room for 180 pupils, around 30 more than the current numbers on roll, with the potential to expand to 210.
