More than 200 new homes could be built in West Norfolk if plans get the green light on Monday.

West Norfolk Council’s planning committee is due to discuss applications for major developments at Docking, West Lynn and North Lynn and officers have recommended approval for all of them.

At Docking, applicant Avada Ltd has applied to build 77 new homes, including 15 affordable properties, at a former seed processing and storage business on the Granaries site on Station Road.

The parish council has objected to the plan as it believes 77 properties is over- development of the site.

There could be five categories of properties on the site, including semi-detached and terraced cottages, detached houses, apartments within a large farmhouse, terraced houses within a stable block arrangement and replica Norfolk barns.

At West Lynn, the school could benefit from a £133,000 boost if plans to build 44 new homes on land adjacent to St Peter’s Road get the go-ahead.

Applicants V W Wolfe and T D Wolfe are seeking outline consent for the properties, with the design reserved for a future application.

Officers at the borough council have received 14 letters of objection to the proposal, stating reasons including a lack of playground facilities, little nursery provision, no doctors or dentists, and the primary school being oversubscribed.

A report to the planning committee said a contribution towards the cost of building a new classroom at the school would be required for councillors to give their consent.

In North Lynn, 89 dwellings, including 13 affordable homes, are proposed on land at Greenpark Avenue, as part of ongoing controversial plans to develop the area around Lynnsport.

These wider redevelopment plans have included the new road which connects Edward Benefer Way and Greenpark Avenue and better access to the Lynnsport site.

The majority of homes proposed for the Greenpark Avenue site are semi-detached, with the remainder comprising detached or linked detached dwellings and terraced homes. The site would include 13 affordable homes.

Objectors have cited loss of habitat, flooding and drainage issues, lack of provision of bungalows and a potential increase in traffic.

Officers have recommended approval of all the applications, subject to a wide range of conditions.

They have also suggested the applications could be refused if the recommended conditions are not met within four months.
