The green light for 40 new homes in a village near Swaffham could be given within weeks, district council officials have confirmed.

Permission in principle was granted for the homes on land west of Chalk Lane in Narborough in 2018, but the details of the scheme will now need Breckland District Council’s approval to proceed.

The development would comprise four one-bedroom, 22 two-bedroom, 12 three-bedroom, and two four-bedroom homes.

Narborough Parish Council last year expressed concerns about the site’s layout, and the effect it would have on neighbouring properties.

But it says that, following a meeting with the developer, and revisions to the plans, they believe their concerns have been satisfied.

The western edge of the site is bordered by the old trackbed of the Lynn-Dereham Railway, which closed in 1968.

A council spokeswoman said it would this week be decided whether the application should be considered by planning officers or elected councillors.

If it is decided by officers, a decision could be issued as soon as February 8.

If it is sent to the planning committee, it could be decided as soon as their next meeting, on February 15.
