Twenty-five new homes could be built in a Norfolk village.
VLH Developments Limited wants to build on land off Downham Road, in Watlington.
It says in its application for outline planning permission: “The site is located within a settlement well served by local facilities as recognised in the adopted development plan and comprises a sustainable location for new housing development.
“The proposal would provide a comprehensive redevelopment of the land at the rear
of 24 – 36 Downham Road in contrast to the piecemeal in depth tandem development

“The illustrative proposal incorporates two storey and single storey development that again responds to the local context and reinforces the local distinctiveness of Watlington.”
