Cromer Town Council's planning committee has decided to object to a plans for 185 new homes, a sports and leisure park on the town's southern outskirts.

The council discussed the application now lodged with North Norfolk District Council from Cheltenham-based Innova Property Ltd for permission to build on a 14-hectare site east and west of Roughton Road.

Councillor Tim Adams, who chairs the council's planning, transportation and environment committee, said they would not support the application because it did not adhere to Cromer's local development plan.

He said there had been 'a lot of concern' about the proposal. Mr Adams said: 'We have asked for sight of the viability assessments which have been withheld.'

There was a public meeting about the plans on October 22, and there is set to be another one where people can have their say from 7.30pm on Monday, November 5 at Roughton Village Hall.
