Plans for 13 new homes in a Norfolk village look set to get the go-ahead.

West Norfolk council's planning committee has been recommended to approve plans to develop land off Lark Road at Stoke Ferry, near Downham Market, when it meets on Thursday.

A report to councillors says the site, which is south of an existing cul-de-sac, has been allocated for housing.

It adds planning permission previously granted for the site has now lapsed.

"This planning application is for the exact same scheme as previously approved albeit updated to current standards, and the applicant is ready to begin works on site as soon as possible," it says.

"The proposal includes significant highways upgrades that will benefit the residents of Lark road and the village of Stoke Ferry as a whole."

Stoke Ferry Parish Council objected on highway safety grounds, because the road through the site is used by lorries serving a nearby sewage treatment plant.

Four villagers objected on grounds the development would bring extra traffic and over its impacts on wildlife.
