Plans for two housing developments in Terrington St Clement look set to be approved by West Norfolk Council next week.

Freebridge Community Housing, based in King’s Lynn, has submitted two planning applications for new homes in Roman Bank.

The first application is to demolish prefabricated bungalows at numbers one, four and five and to replace them with three pairs of semi-detached houses. A second application is for demolition of bungalows at numbers seven and eight Church Bank and the construction of two pairs of semi-detached homes and one detached home.

Members of the council’s planning committee are recommended to approve both applications at a meeting on Monday.

But Terrington St Clement Parish Council has objected to the houses amid concerns about flooding and has asked that the bungalows be replaced “like for like”.

Parish councillors are also calling for the bungalow at number eight to be listed because it has not been altered since it was built in the post-war era.

The borough council has also received several letters objecting to the applications.

In a report to the planning committee, planning officers concluded: “The proposal would not have a detrimental impact upon amenity, highway safety nor flood risk in the area.”
