A proposal for nine new homes next to a terrace of cottages on a dead-end road is in the hands of planners.

The outline application is looking to build the detached and semi-detached houses in Old Coast Road, in Ormesby St Margaret.

The bid is for land next to Salisbury Cottages with primary access off the dead-end street.

It is described as "a small development."

A decision is due by January 25.

The site is near to the former First and Last pub which is bidding to be demolished and turned into flats and shops - a proposal that has drawn concerns, including from households in Old Coast Road.
