A public consultation held to show proposed new homes at North Lynn was attended by around 30 and 40 people.

Officers at West Norfolk Council held the open day on Thursday at Lynnsport to encourage feedback on its proposal for new homes on land in the Lynnsport and Marsh Lane areas.

The plans were on display ahead of a formal planning application being submitted.

A council spokesman said  responses to the Lynnsport Four and Five proposed scheme were “positive”.

“There were some suggestions for improvements, including the provision of benches or seating, where possible.

“People also responded positively to the link path that will be put in, giving better access to the King Edward VII Academy,” the spokesman said, adding: “People were genuinely interested, asked lots of questions and seemed satisfied with the information they were given.”

The sites are part of five areas earmarked for a total of 399 homes in the next five years.

The overall development includes some additional sports facilities and parking spaces at Lynnsport and a 2.6-hectare  (6.4-acres) managed nature area.

The proposals can be viewed online and feedback can still be given. See: www.larondewright.co.uk/
