Blundeston homes plan set to be approved
A scheme to build 14 houses on the site of a former garage in Blundeston, near Lowestoft, has been recommended for approval if the developers help fund an public open space.
Tredwell Developments has applied to Waveney District Council to build the two storey homes on the former Walton Garage site on the Street.
The council's development control committee will discuss the plans on Tuesday, May 15 with planning officers recommending the scheme be approved.
Planners say the homes are 'considered to make a positive contribution to the existing street frontage' and, while not being affordable, will 'enable much needed economic activity during a prolonged period of low growth'. The homes would have garages and parking bays and two spaces for visitors.
Four residents have sent in letters to the council about the plans with some voicing concerns over access, parking problems and hedges being retained while others welcomed the plans, which has been given the seal of approval by Blundeston Parish Council if there is enough parking for the homes.
The plans are recommended for approval if the developers provide a financial contribution for a public open space and follows several conditions including vehicular access and retaining hedges.
