An eco-friendly bid for homes on a disused hockey pitch could be expanded by an extra 14 properties.
Permission for 82 homes on the site of a redundant hockey pitch in King’s Lynn was granted in 2017, but the borough council is now applying for the go-ahead from its own planning department for a revised plan of 96 homes.
The development, accessed from Aconite Road, would consist of six one-bedroom properties, 26 two-bedrooms, 42 three-bedrooms and 22 four-bedrooms.
All of the one-bedroom homes would be affordable, along with six of the two-bedrooms and two of the three-bedrooms.
At a Tuesday meeting of the council’s King’s Lynn area consultative committee, a council officer said electric vehicle facilities and ducting - which distributes airflow across homes - throughout the development would “future-proof” it.
Thirty of the homes are also planned to have solar panels.
The homes would form part of a multi-phase development around the Lynnsport facilities, most of which has been completed.
The plan is expected to go before the council's planning committee in January.
