Work is progressing so well at a housing development in north Norfolk that about 15pc of the homes could soon be occupied.

Developers want an amendment to plans to allow 12 homes at the 78-home development at Rudham Stile Lane in Fakenham to be occupied, prior to the implementation of off-site highway works.

Buyers have been found for the 12 homes and Lovell Partnerships Ltd also wants to remove the requirement to install a continuous footpath along Rudham Stile Lane to Claypit Lane, and to allow the homes to be occupied before a crossing point from the site to Grove Lane has been proposed.

It has also applied to allow up to 40 dwellings to be occupied before the crossing point to Grove Lane has been provided

However, the amendment also includes a ban on the occupation of the homes before the proposed existing safe route to school has been advertised to each occupant.
