A plot of land in Attleborough is in line for a development of more than 40 homes, after councillors granted outline planning permission to the project.
Norfolk County Council sought permission for land south of New Road in the town, in a development which would see 48 homes built.
As part of the application’s conditions, almost £146,000 could be secured to go towards expanding Attleborough Primary School, along with £3,600 for the town’s library.
At the same meeting, councillors also approved plans to demolish the town’s former Post Office sorting centre on the High Street, in favour of a block of 10 flats.
Several members raised concerns over the development’s lack of parking provisions - with none of the 10 flats coming with a parking space.
However, chairman Nigel Wilkin said it would be a “buyer beware” development, with potential buyers made aware of the lack of parking on purchase.
