A new 77-apartment care home is set to be built in a north Norfolk town.

The home will be located on disused land south of Norwich Road in North Walsham if it is granted planning permission.

The new additional home is the second planned forĀ the land, after permission for a first was grantedĀ in September 2019, however building work is yet to begin on either.

Recently, metal fencing has been put up around the site, with a temporary office erected.
