Plans have been lodged to build eight homes in a south Norfolk village.

The application hopes to build seven bungalows and one two-storey home in Brooke, a village situated on the B1332 Norwich–Bungay Road.

Applicant, Mr A Jones, has outlined 0.84 hectares of land at the bottom of High Green for the development, which will be a cul-de-sac estate.

It is said that the homes will be built to a "very high level of thermal performance" over and above the current building regulations standards.

This is to ensure properties have a low carbon footprint and are economical for occupants to run.

The documents say PV panels will be mounted on the "south-facing roofs of all proposed dwellings" to provide renewable energy.

Plans say the applicant considers it "to be a contextually appropriate, sympathetic, and sustainable development", with regard to the "constraints, characteristics and opportunities" presented by the site and its surroundings.
