Plans have been put in place to demolish one bungalow in Ormesby, to make way for five new ones.

Applicants, Commercial Property, from London, have submitted the proposals to build the five new bungalows on Green Acres, Meadowcroft, Yarmouth Road in Ormesby.

It is located close to the Pointers East development on the fringes of Caister and Ormesby – where 189 homes are to be built.

The applicant’s design and access statement stated that the five new chalet bungalows would be put up for sale on the open market and the layout would provide ample private gardens and amenity space.

It said: “The proposed development will provide much needed housing that will blend in well with the surrounding area and neighbouring properties.”

Access to the site will be via the existing private driveway and access into the development will be through automatic gates operated by either vehicle sensors or a code keypad to ensure security for the residents.

In a consultation response to the application, Renee Barclay, of Yarmouth Road, Ormesby, said: “I object to five chalet bungalows which borders my property. The trees and wildlife should be protected and there is inadequate vehicular access – only a small private shared driveway.
