Plans for Wicklewood home approved despite objections

Plans for a new one-and-a-half storey home in a Norfolk village have been approved despite objections from neighbours who feared being overlooked and having to put up with noise.

Michael Goodwin had applied to South Norfolk Council's planning committee for permission to sub-divide a garden in Church Lane, Wicklewood, near Wymondham, to provide the new home and garage, but 14 residents wrote to the council to complain the development was too big for the size of the plot and would result in them losing privacy.

The development will be 7.2m high with four velux windows on the rear for a dressing room, en-suite and bedroom.
