The site of a former abattoir in Stalham could be turned into retirement homes - 10 years after it was last used.
Housebuilder McCarthy and Stone has entered into an agreement, which would see it take ownership of the site in Old Market Road, should planning permission from North Norfolk District Council be granted. It is now working up proposals for its redevelopment with Retirement Living apartments and bungalows.
Regional managing director Matt Wills said: 'The abattoir site has been empty and unused for over 10 years.
'Our plans will ensure a sensitive future use of the site for the community and neighbouring residents.
'We are keen to work alongside the community to transform this site with a high-quality age-exclusive retirement development and bungalows. In due course, we will begin consulting with the Stalham community about our plans.'
