‘Higgledy-piggledy’ homes planned for former pub garden

Houses are set to spring up on a former pub garden in Great Yarmouth’s busy urban heart.
Some six town houses are proposed at the Oakwood pub in Howard Street South.
The scheme involves sweeping away a single storey extension to the pub, variously called Casper Jacks, Legends and the Irish-themed O'Grady's.
The pub, now permanently closed, was well-known as a popular live music venue during its heyday.
Under plans submitted to Great Yarmouth Borough Council six homes are planned on the site, featuring open-plan living and, in some cases, a master bedroom with a roof terrace.
A mix of building heights spanning two to three storeys is said to contribute to the "higgledy-piggledy" character of the area, said to be typical of central Yarmouth.
There will be 12 parking spaces.
- 1 New York, Paris, Peckham, Great Yarmouth - Only Fools stars coming to town
- 2 'The best yet' - Yarmouth's celebration of wheels gearing up for return
- 3 New seafront festival promises feast of family fun
- 4 New Norfolk café is selling out of its custard tarts and Nutella-filled croissants
- 5 Access road for driveways denied to Gorleston residents
- 6 Tyson Fury is making a comeback to Gorleston
- 7 Heaven & Hell: David Whiteley and Amelia Reynolds
- 8 Charity football match to boost Norfolk and Waveney MIND
- 9 Pupils 'not afraid to share ideas' - School praised by Ofsted
- 10 Green light for quarry's expansion and longer life
Architects drawings show a terrace of four three-story buildings with horizontal, black-stained, timber cladding.
The designs are said to be mindful of the impact on nearby Braham's Court.
The pub itself is being refurbished by the applicant under a separate scheme which has yet to be presented to planners.
