A Norfolk town could get five new homes after a planning application to build properties there was submitted.

The applicant, Martin Holland, has applied to have five homes built on land on the eastern side of Shotford Road toward the southern fringes of the town of Harleston.

The documents lodged with South Norfolk Council say the five detached homes will be built to the "highest standard" and will be consistent in the "character and appearance " of the area.

The papers from the applicant describe the development as "modest" so they decided that no pre-application consultation was necessary.

To date, one member of the public has voiced concerns over the development impeding vision on their driveway, the fact there is no pavement, and how the development would impact services in the event of an emergency.

Earlier this year plans were approved to build nearly 100 homes in the town despite GP fears.
