West Norfolk Council drops road objection to plan for 600 homes on edge of King's Lynn

The Knights Hill scheme will now not be opposed on transport grounds, after legal advice warned West Norfolk Council could be seen to be acting "unreasonably" if it stuck to that line.
But the application for 600 new homes is still set to go to a public inquiry in the new year, over heritage issues.
