Controversial plans for houses on land in a south Norfolk village have been tipped for approval by planners.

Controversial plans for houses on land in a south Norfolk village have been tipped for approval by planners.

Cripps Development is seeking permission to build four three-bedroom bungalows on land next to the Garden House pub in Hales.

The proposals have been recommended for approval, with conditions, by officers at South Norfolk Council.

The parish council recommended the scheme be refused citing concerns about flooding, among other issues.

The district council has received nine letters of objection from local residents whose concerns include traffic issues, the loss of mature shrubs and flooding. There has been one letter of support for the scheme.

In a report to councillors, planning officers say the proposed layout and design of the dwellings is acceptable and will not result in over- development nor be out of character in the locality.

The scheme will be discussed at the district council's south and east area planning committee on Monday.
