Plans to turn a remote disused cattle shed into a home look set to be turned down over flood risk fears.

Lyn Garrett applied to convert the building, down a track off Thornham Road at Holme, near Hunstanton. 

In a supporting statement, her agent said: "The application proposal will reuse an interesting existing range of buildings to provide a family home."

But councillors have been recommended to turn down the proposals when they meet on Monday.

Holme Parish Council objected. It said the property is "inadequately defended from tidal flooding" with no safe access for emergency services in a flood.

It added: "There is no demonstrated need for this house, it is difficult to see how the wider sustainability benefits for the community could outweigh the flood risk."

A planning report said: "While the application includes part conversion of existing structures, the proposal as a whole is tantamount to a new dwelling within an area of significant flood risk."
