Large Holt housing development recommended for refusal
- Credit: PA
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'.
