Councillors set to refuse application for 16 home development on Salhouse equestrian centre
A previously-deferred application to build up to 16 homes on an equestrian centre is expected to be knocked back by councillors.
In October 2017, Broadland District Council’s planning committee deferred a decision over an outline application for up to 16 homes on Lower Street, Salhouse.
The land is currently used by Fielder Horse and Rider Ltd, however, Woodbastwick Estate has applied to develop part of it.
However, council officers have recommended the committee refuse the application, on the grounds that it would not “respect, conserve or enhance the characteristic of the rural landscape”.
The report said: “It is considered that the scheme as a whole would adversely affect the setting of the heritage asset that is Salhouse Conservation Area.

Officers also raised fears the development could pose a flooding risk, with developers not outlining a satisfactory method of surface water drainage.
The committee meets at 9.30am on Wednesday, April 25.
