A Norfolk village could grow by a dozen homes after two planning applications were submitted.

The applications were lodged to South Norfolk Council to build the homes in Wortwell, between Harleston and Bungay.

One application, submitted by Messrs R and N Bond, is to build eight two-storey properties on land to the north of High Road in the village.

Six of the homes will be detached, with two semi-detached, as per the plans.

Another bid, lodged by Mr and Mrs Riches, is to build four detached "chalet style" houses in the village on land to the south of High Road.

The agent, Mr Jake Collinge, is overseeing the application for both developments, with the joint planning statement saying the homes will be "sympathetic to the local character" and "visually attractive".
