A fence described as "dominating" must be lowered or taken down after it was refused planning permission.

A householder named only by the surname Taylor in council planning papers applied for retrospective permission for the woven structure at a bungalow on Beacon Hill, at Burnham Market.

But the parish council (PC) objected, saying: "The fencing is dominating and out of character in height and materials at this location and therefore the PC does not believe that this retrospective application complies with the Burnham Market Neighbourhood Plan and should not be permitted."

A neighbour added: "The new fence is too high , looks awful."

West Norfolk Council said the fence either needs to be removed or lowered so that no part of it exceeds one metre in height.

It added it was also possible that the applicant could appeal the decision.
