A scheme aiming to raise cash for a Norfolk council by developing homes on pockets of vacant land it owns has been reviewed.
Breckland Council's so-called Mud to Houses project was aimed at making money out of council-owned land considered redundant.
But it hit controversy earlier this year when Dereham residents fought against one of these pieces of land being included in the plan.
Breckland's cabinet heard on Tuesday that the council needed to look at other priorities, not just money making, for the land.
