Forty houses could be built on land at the edge of a Norfolk village.

Two separate schemes could see Denbury Homes Ltd build the homes on a two-acre site off Station Road in Ormesby.

The first application, for seven detached houses, was approved earlier this month by planners at Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

The other bid is proposing to build 33 houses and would be accessed from an extension to Foster Close.

In 2020, the application was granted outline planning permission - and now the developers are asking the council to approve reserved matters including the appearance, layout and scale of the estate.

The plans include 24 houses on the open market, seven so-called 'affordable homes', and one shared ownership dwelling.

The application will be discussed at a meeting of the borough council's development management committee on Wednesday, March 20.

In a report prepared ahead of the meeting, planning officials recommended that councillors approve the reserved matters and grant consent to the application.

Five neighbours have objected to the plans, raising concerns about parking pressure in Foster Close, as well as noise and disturbance during construction.

A separate application to build seven houses on the site was approved earlier this month.

There will be three two-bedroom, two three-bedroom and two four-bedroom houses.

Planners said the proposal will provide "a positive economic benefit through construction spend and longer term through local spend by the dwellings' occupants".

They also highlighted the social benefit that will arise from new occupants and potential social interaction.

The bid had faced six objections from neighbours relating to impacts of highway safety and loss of privacy.

Ormesby St Margaret with Scratby Parish Council had also objected to the plans over noise and transportation of building materials along Foster Close.
