Residents of a north Norfolk neighbourhood are fuming at the thought of spending another five months confronted by the sight and noise of four shipping containers, a skip and a portable toilet on the green in front of their homes.

But that is what those who live in Tenison Road and Nelson Road, North Walsham, are facing after Victory Housing Trust turned the spot into a depository for subcontractors working on projects elsewhere.

But Victory, which owns the small square, said the land would continue to be used until next March as a base for work to replace windows at 235 homes across the district.

Jenny Appleton, who lives on Tenison Road, said: “It’s a complete eyesore. What a mess! [The workers] come here with their vans, they pick up what they want and off they go. And we’re having to tolerate this right in front of our homes when they’re not even working here.”

Derrick Thompson, another resident, said he was fed up with the noise the workers made.
