Diss Town Council has recommended refusal on a plan to demolish a commercial building and replace it with four homes.
An initial application, submitted by Derek Fiske for land to the east of 38C Mission Road, was opposed by the town council, believing it would be an “overdevelopment” of the site, while the privacy of neighbouring bungalows would also be compromised.
A revised application was submitted in November — but in their consultee comments to South Norfolk Council, Diss Town Council say the new proposal is “not significantly different” to change their original recommendation,
South Norfolk Council will have the final say on the planning application.
Planning documents on behalf of the client said the nine jobs at the business which owns the site, featuring vehicle hire, garage work and car sales, would not be affected, with the revenue generated from the building plot sales to be used to expand the business at Sawmills Road.
