A plan to add a balcony to a bungalow in a Norfolk village that led to a row between neighbours has been approved. 

A homeowners’ bid to create an extension to their property on Trunch Road in Mundesley has been approved by North Norfolk District Council. 

The scheme will see a balcony added to one side, which has led to a bitter feud with neighbours, who fear it will be “overbearing” and will lead to a loss of privacy. 

It previously came before the council’s planning committee last month but was delayed so members could visit the site. 

At that meeting, a member of Trunch Parish Council accused the homeowner, Harry Little, of being “intimidating”, something that was denied by Mr Little. 

Addressing last Thursday’s committee, Mr Little said: “We are quiet neighbours, and we will not create any extra noise or light because we have a balcony. 

“The balcony will only be accessible from the master bedroom and would only be used as a place of relaxation and not entertainment.” 

The scheme was approved with nine votes for, two against and one abstention.
