Artist’s impressions have been released for a revised, proposed development to build new homes on land off Parkway in Gaywood.

If it goes ahead, the new estate will feature 226 homes, with a mix of two, three and four bedroom properties, including four blocks of flats.

The original controversial scheme for 379 homes sparked protests against the proposed larger development which also included green space to the east.

Objectors, including actor Stephen Fry, were opposed due to the loss of trees and wildlife habitat.

West Norfolk Council’s revised scheme is now contained within the former College of West Anglia site.  

Each home will have air source heat pumps and underfloor heating to maximise efficiency and minimise impact on the environment.

Roofs which are aligned with the sun will have solar panels installed.

Parking spaces will be electric charging ready and garages will have charging points installed.

Paul Kunes, cabinet member for environment, said: “The design of the scheme means we are removing as few trees as possible and for every tree removed a further three will be planted.”

The scheme should be considered for approval early next year.
