Plans for homes on land off Colegate End Road rejected
Plans to build new housing on the edge of Pulham Market have been refused because it would be out of character with the area.
The proposal to build seven houses, including three affordable homes, on land off Colegate End Road was rejected by South Norfolk Council on Friday.
The application by A J Alexander & Sons, said that the development would provide a mix of homes, including an affordable bungalow for older people and two plots for starter homes.
The development had been opposed by Pulham Market Parish Council, which said it was outside the village development boundary and that previous applications had been turned down due to concerns over ribbon development.
In its statement, South Norfolk Council said it would “urbanise the setting of the two Grade II-listed buildings opposite, no longer preserving their rural setting” and had, therefore, been refused.
