Fancy living in a former golf workshop? 

Two families may soon have that chance if plans for a building on the site of the former Dunham Golf Club are successful. 

The scheme would also see a public footpath in the village, between Swaffham and Dereham, moved to run closer to the former Granary Hotel. 

The plans for the site off Paulgrave Road site are for “a relatively modern building possibly 1970s, initially built for agricultural use and latterly used as a workshop, garage and store for the Dunham Golf Club (now defunct), it now lies redundant.”

The building would become two semi-detached homes with three bedrooms each. 

Around 300 people live in Little Dunham, which was on the railway network until 1968. Despite its tiny size, it was bombed by a German Zeppelin airship which had been bound for London during the First World War, in 1917. 

A decision on the application is expected by December 6, 2023.
