Developer MLN (Land and Properties) Ltd are appealing against North Norfolk District Council's (NNDC) decision to refuse planning permission for a site in North Walsham, on August 3 2017.

The inquiry date is set for Tuesday, August 21.

The application was previously submitted and turned down in March 2017.

The council's development committee said the plans, to build 200 homes on land between Aylsham Road and Greens Road, extended into surrounding countryside and would be considered a departure from the local plan.
