New push to develop site near Wymondham Railway Station

A developer has renewed its efforts to develop a key piece of land in Wymondham - 15 years after its first plan for the site was rejected.
Surrey-based Mountleigh Development Holdings is appealing an earlier refusal for permission to build 64 homes and 750 square metres of 'commercial floor space' on a 4.1 acre site bound by Cemetery Lane and Station Road, just north of the town's railway station.
The developer first applied to redevelop the site in 2002, but this was refused, as was a similar application in 2009.
This application also included plans for a new car park and coach parking facilities to serve the station.
However, the new appeal only asks for outline planning permission for residential development, without specifying how many homes might later be built at the site.
