A proposal for 20 affordable homes in Kessingland has been resubmitted after initially being refused.

If the application is successful, seven two-bedroom bungalows, five two-bedroom houses and eight three-bedroom houses will be built beside The Nordalls, off Glebe Road East.

Original plans were supported by planning officers but were refused by the planning committee due to the flood risk in periods of heavy rainfall. The new application outlines a sustainable drainage system.

Residents objected to the potential loss of wildlife traffic, risk of flooding and overdevelopment in an area with a largely elderly population.

Access to the homes, which will be managed by the Flagship Housing Group, will be via the existing road leading through The Nordalls and the houses will be in a cul-de-sac. Some of the trees will remain and there will also be an area of open space.

Waveney District Council's development control committee will discuss the application at a future meeting.
