Whittington Hill homes proposal
Proposals to built a cluster of 10 new homes at Whittington Hill have been met with objections from several residents who live near the site.
Their concerns include claims that the village and its amenities would not be able to cope and that natural views would be lost.
The scheme, which has gone to West Norfolk planners, would create a housing development on a grass field at Whittington Hill with access via an existing entrance on Methwold Road.
The planning statement reveals that there would be a mix of three and four-bedroomed houses and that "responding to emerging work trends" each would have dedicated home working space.
One objector complains that the proposal would "overcrowd the village" and points out that schools and doctors' surgeries are already full to capacity.
Others have concerns about the access onto a road which is notorious for speeding traffic, and about the loss of a field which provides natural views and is a home to wildlife and some objectors claim that they will suffer lack of privacy which will devalue their homes.
