Concern over ‘unduly one dimensional’ new homes plan
Health chiefs have warned that local GP practices will struggle to cope with plans to build 100 new homes in north Norfolk.
And now they are demanding £30,170 from the developers to help improve the service.
NHS England was responding to plans, submitted by Persimmon Homes, to develop a housing scheme on the outskirts of North Walsham.
Councillors on North Norfolk District Council's development committee are due to discuss the proposals at their meeting in Cromer today (Thursday, February 11).
