A decision on plans to turn a derelict diner into housing has been delayed.

The plans to build 26 homes at the former Necton Diner site on the A47 at Necton, near Swaffham, were due to go before Breckland Council’s planning committee this morning.

The proposals were deferred due to highway and safety matters.

As previously reported, the site, which has been disused for about four years, has been dubbed as one of the “worst eyesores in Norfolk”. There have been some concerns raised, however, about access to the planned development from Tuns Road, with people living in the area saying it could make issues with traffic worse.
