Large Holt housing development recommended for refusal

A large housing development proposal in a north Norfolk town previously rejected by councillors will be debated tomorrow.
The Gladman Developments application for up to 170 homes south of Lodge Close, next to Holt Country Park, will be discussed by North Norfolk District Council's development committee at its Cromer headquarters.
A similar proposal by the Cheshire-based developer was unanimously turned down by the same committee in October last year.
Gladman has appealed the initial decision.
The latest submission has been recommended for refusal by planning officers because it would not be sustainable 'given the lack of available infrastructure in the town'.
They said Holt Primary School would not be able to cope with extra numbers.
Gladman said the development represented sustainable development and would contribute to the council's five-year land supply.

The firm would also provide community benefits through section 106 cash and 45pc of the homes would be affordable.
Holt Town Council has objected and 20 individual letters of objection were sent to the district council.
