The design and outlay of 91 new homes planned for north Hethersett have been revealed.

The homes are part of a larger 1,196-home development which the property developer Taylor Wimpey received outline planning permission for in July 2013.

The 91 new houses, in a mixture of sizes from one bedroom to five, are part of the second phase of construction, called A1-B.

The first phase, A1-A, included 95 homes.

The second phase estate would be accessed by a new junction off Back Lane/Churchfields, and the site would include 18 affordable homes.

The plans include three areas of green open space.

The larger scheme will include a primary school, shops, business units and sports pitches.
