A development of 24 houses and a 70-bed care home in Sheringham has been described as a "win-win" for the town.

The scheme, called West Wood, would be located in Weybourne Road, next to The Reef, the town's new £12.7m pool and leisure centre which is due to open this year.

A planning application has not yet been submitted, as the bid is still in the pre-planning phase and the developers are asking for feedback.

The site, at the western entrance to the town,  is currently owned by Hollands Sheringham.

If planning permission is granted, the land would be sold to Flagship Homes, with half of the funds then granted to Sheringham Town Council.

The remaining money would be donated to charities including Sheringham and District Sports Association and Woodfields School.
