Plans for almost 160 new homes in Hethersett go on show
Dozens of villagers attended a consultation event today to air their views on proposals for 156 new family homes in Hethersett, near Norwich.
National developer Gladedale is looking to submit a detailed planning application for a new estate on agricultural land off Great Melton Road this spring.
Officials from the developer stressed they had no connection with Hethersett Land Ltd, which has plans on the table for 1,196 new homes in the village.
However, drawings for the Gladedale scheme propose a link road to connect to the much larger project, which has already been submitted to South Norfolk Council planners.
James McCrae, development manager for Gladedale, said they had been promoting the greenfield site off Great Melton Road for over two years and were open to amending the scheme following feedback from local residents.

'It is a low density extension to the village and it is high quality family housing. There is a housing need and Hethersett Land have applied for a much larger piece and it will be a long-term project over 18 years. This is a site that is deliverable and we see us building in 12 to 18 months,' he said.
The new proposals include a range of two to five-bedroom two-storey houses.
