A market town is set for a £1.3 million boost after permission was granted for 165 homes on a former industrial site, with conditions for investment in local services.
Permission for the development on the former Grampian Foods site in Attleborough was granted unanimously by Breckland Council's planning committee today.
As part of the permission for the development off Buckenham Road, which will include up to 41 affordable homes, a section 106 agreement was made requiring the developers to provide £1,055,505 in contributions towards education, to be split between Attleborough's Infant, Junior and High Schools.
A further £200,000 in infrastructure contributions, including £54,600 to help increased demand for healthcare services, up to £15,000 towards a new bus shelter in Norwich Road and up to £9,900 towards new library equipment, were also included in the agreement.
Beccy Rejzek, for agents Bidwells, said: 'I believe this is a sustainable development and there is no adverse impact that outweighs the benefits.'
