A massive barn in a rural village is set to be replaced by two new homes.

Glover Farming has been given outline planning permission to demolish the building at Wretton, near Downham Market.

A planning officers report said most of the site on Chequers Road is "dominated by a large agricultural building".

Wretton Parish Council said the proposals "would be a great improvement to the street scene".

It added the barn is close to houses and safety measures including sealing off the site would be needed in the event of asbestos being found in the building.

The planning report said a "suitable and sufficient assessment" should be carried out to find out whether asbestos is present before demolition work is carried out.
