A couple look set to win planning consent to demolish a bungalow in the centre of Fakenham and build seven homes on the site.

The proposal is to build a pair of semi-detached three-bedroom houses with a vehicle access between them, behind where a terrace of five three-bedroom properties would be built.

On the front of the site, in Gladstone Road, there would be parking for 12 cars.

The scheme also provides brick boundary walls, timber fences and associated landscaping and bin store.

In May, a previous scheme proposed by the applicants was refused and the scheme was withdrawn. Concerns related to overdevelopment, and the scheme being considered out of character with the area and having a detrimental effect on amen-ities of No 6 Gladstone Road.
