Land next to the site of the failed Norfolk incinerator has been sold to a mystery buyer.

The three acre site at the Willows, Saddlebow, had been on the market for some years, with a suggested price of £295,000. It has not been made public who has bought the site or what they plan to use it for.

Agents Brown & Co said on its website it was 'an open development site suitable for commercial use'.

It added the site was included within an area zoned for industrial uses within the adopted local plan for West Norfolk and is suitable for uses falling within light industrial, general industrial, storage and distribution. It adds: 'Any development will require a reserved matters planning application.' The land is near the King's Lynn Police Investigation Centre and Norfolk Arena. It is also to the east of the proposed site of the King's Lynn incinerator, which was eventually abandoned after a bitter battle lasting four years.
