More than 10 homes could be built on a former builders' yard in Foulsham.

MacKinnon Construction Limited is seeking permission to build 11 properties off Claypit Road, on the site of T H Blyth and Sons.

Planning papers submitted to Broadland District Council state the development would be a mix of single and two-storey dwellings.

Meanwhile, access to the new homes would be from Claypit Road, with pedestrian access proposed for Chapel Lane.

The existing site consists of buildings dating back to the 1940s, which are said to have reached the end of their 'economic life'.
