THE south Norfolk village of Rockland St Mary could be set to expand, with plans for 10 new affordable homes going before councillors.

Broadland Housing Association wants to build two flats, two bungalows and six houses on farmland at New Inn Hill.

South Norfolk Council has received letters of objection from nine households, who say the work should not take place on a greenfield site and that there were more suitable locations for development in the village.

The project would include a new access point from New Inn Hill and a landscaped area created on the road frontage, including a wild flower meadow.

The application for full planning permission, which is being recommended for approval by officers, will go before the planning committee on April 29.

Papers from the agenda state that the proposed development is located outside the development limits for Rockland St Mary, but that being a proposal for affordable housing, the scheme could still go ahead.
