A new village primary school looks set to get the go-ahead.
Norfolk County Council has applied to build the new primary and nursery on Back Lane, Gayton.
Plans include a play area, sports pitch and a new parking area off Winch Road, along with staff parking spaces.
West Norfolk councillors were recommended to object until issues regarding flood risk and transport had been dealt with. But today its planning committee agreed the plans.
A planning statement said that while the area is considered to be at risk of flooding, mitigation measures including raised flooring and water storage have been factored into the design.
