A bid to build homes on a wedge of land would create a “village green” gateway for a seaside community.
Lowestoft-based Badger Buidling claims its proposal for bungalows and houses would be an opportunity to create a “character” gateway to Scratby.
Planning documents submitted to Great Yarmouth Borough Council reveal the developer is looking to build 28 bungalows and 39 houses on land along Scratby Road, formerly a fruit growing and pick-your-own field.
Some 13 properties will be “affordable”.
They say six people responded to a consultation which saw 30 leaflets delivered.

Two responses were in general support.
Plans show homes overlooking a central green and a “character village green” alongide the A149.
Councillor Geoff Freeman whose Great Yarmouth Borough Council ward includes the site said the plans were “worthy of good consideration.”
People have until September 5 to have their say.
