A bid to build 33 houses in Fleggburgh has been recommended for approval.

The plan, to be discussed at a meeting of Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s development control committee on Thursday (May 21), would see the scheme, including nine social houses, constructed on land north of Tower Road.

The proposal has received a number of objections from residents over concerns the development would place further demands on local facilities and infrastructure.

An estate of nine houses is already under construction on land adjacent to the site, immediately to the east of Tower Road.
