Plans to build two homes on the site of a derelict north Norfolk farm building should be refused, according to council officers.
North Norfolk District Council’s planning committee is due to consider the plans, for Heppinn Barn, North Walsham Road, Banningham, at its meeting on Thursday, August 20.
But a report prepared by officers says unauthorised works have taken place at the site, and the homes would be in: “an unsustainable location with only a very limited range of services/facilities”, leaving occupants dependant on private car use.
It said that prior approval had been given for work at the site, but work had since taken place there which had not been approved.
One of the new homes would have three bedrooms and the other would have four.
