A telephone mast in Norwich could be relocated to make room for a school if plans submitted to Broadland Council are approved.
Plans to build 283 dwellings, a site for a primary school and landscaping in Smee Lane, Great Plumstead, were approved by the council on December 19 last year.
To support the infrastructure of this development plans have been made to move a telephone mast to a location else where on the site.
The mast is operated by Argiva and is at the north boundary of the Broadland Northway.
It would be moved to an area closer to Smee Road where access will be available, freeing up a site for the school.
The application, by Barton Willmore, on behalf of Landform Norwich, says: “The proposed mast is 15m high. Vehicle access and servicing will be provided from Smee Lane.”
