West Norfolk planning committee members have deferred their decision on plans for 54 homes on land north of Lynnsport in King's Lynn amid design concerns.

West Norfolk Council and Lovell Partnerships Ltd is seeking full planning permission for the homes, access roads, footways and new areas of open space.

The meeting today heard two flats would be situated above garages belonging to other residents. Chairman Vivienne Spikings said the owners would be 'driven to distraction' from the noise.

Avril Wright said she did not object to the application, but added: 'The homes are slightly characterless, boring and a bit bog-standard. We can and must do better if we are going to give future residents of this area somewhere uplifting and 'characterful' to live in.'
