Close to 100 new homes are to be built on the outskirts of Norwich after the project received the approval of councillors.

Members of Broadland District Council’s planning committee voted in favour of a scheme for up to 93 homes off Beech Avenue in Taverham.

The development, which is on land bordering the grounds of Wensum Valley Hotel, Golf and Country Club, included provisions for 33 affordable homes - more than a third of the overall scheme.

The project will also include a new 20mph zone introduced around the junction with Ringland Road, along with changes to the junction’s priorities.

The junction works had originally been touted to begin at first occupancy of the development, however, following a motion from Lana Hempsall, a condition was added for these to begin before the homes are built.

Ed Plumb, of developers Brown and Co, said a reserved matters application would be submitted in the coming months.
