This site, which is connected to the Lynnsport development and link road, could have 20 social housing properties and 110 private homes if the application is given the green light.

Residents have been invited to a drop-in session between 10am and 8pm at Lynnsport on Thursday to view the submitted application and to talk to representatives from the council and their contractor Lovell.

Deputy leader and cabinet member for regeneration Alistair Beales said: “The plans that have been submitted take on board various comments received at our earlier consultation events.

“This drop-in session is an opportunity for people to see the revised plans and to discuss them with us. The plans will also be available on the planning pages of our website where people will be able to leave comments for consideration by planning officers and members.”

The council is looking to build 399 homes across five sites within this major housing project.

The development also includes a link road from Edward Benefer Way to Lynnsport, which was granted planning permission in April, along with extra car parking spaces at the sports centre

The plans include new hockey pitches, tennis courts and improved community facilities at the Dutton Pavilion thanks to a £100,000 extension.

Work has already begun on the creation of a 2.6-hectare managed nature area and on Monday, volunteers will be joining Norfolk Wildlife Trust to start work on creating some steps to improve access to the area.

The proposals can be viewed either online at, on the planning pages on the council’s website or by visiting the council offices at King’s Court.
