Diss Town Council has deferred its recommendation on a proposed 136 homes plan until further documents are made available by the developer.

Persimmon Homes have submitted revised plans for land north of Frenze Hall Lane, with full council set to offer their say at last week’s meeting.

But the meeting was advised by a representative of the developer that written documents in support of the application, including the design and access statement and other technical documents “were still awaited.”

A spokesperson for the residents’ group Diss-Organised said there had been productive liaison between themselves, Persimmon and the town council, and said they were seeking a resolution to the application in a “positive manner”.

Some residents also had their say at the meeting. Comments included concerns about overlooking of bungalows on Hawk Crescent, the lack of street lighting, and the impact of the location of the access on properties opposite.

The application, 2016/1566, can be viewed online at www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/planning
