Ten new homes in Narborough would look out over grazing sheep

Plans have been lodged for ten new homes on part of a field in Narborough, with the rest of the land to be grazed by sheep.
The development would be accessed off Narford Road via a new private drive over the field, which was last used for horticultural purposes.
The homes would be equipped with electric vehicle charging points and range from two to five bedrooms. Three of them are planned to be affordable.
Cattle grids would be installed at either end of the private road, with fencing enclosing the paddock itself.
A footpath would link the development with Swaffham Road.
A statement submitted by the applicant’s agent notes: “It is understood that there have been a number of finds of Iron Age, Roman and Saxon artefacts in the locality.
“There is therefore a potential for buried archaeology to be present within the application site.”
