Fresh plans for a housing development off Russett Close in King’s Lynn have been submitted.

London-based applicant Boyer Investments is seeking outline planning permission for up to 81 homes at the site, to the north of the Gaywood River, along with an access road, bridge, cycle path and an area of open space.

An application for up to 95 homes was refused consent at appeal last year because it did not provide replacement open space for what communal land would be lost at Russett Close, a report supporting the application says.

“Residents of the Reffley Estate will gain easier access to additional open space to be provided within the proposed housing development, as well as improved cycle and pedestrian links to the south and east,” the report continues.

Outline permission for housing at the site was first granted in 2008.

A number of affordable homes would be included if the development goes ahead.

Some residents objected to the previous planning application before it was rejected by West Norfolk Council’s planning committee in March last year.

The borough council is expected to make a decision on the latest scheme by  the end of February.

λ In a separate application, the Conygar Investment Company is seeking to renew its outline planning permission for up to 98 homes on a site next to the St Nicholas Business Park in King’s Lynn.

Planning permission for homes at the site was first granted in 2009. Permission was renewed in December 2012 and is due to run out this month.

“Conygar wish to retain an extant outline planning permission upon the site to maintain – and hopefully improve – its marketing prospects,” a report supporting the application says.
