A decision about plans for a new care home in Swaffham has been deferred.
Breckland councillors were due to consider proposals for a retirement village to be built at Highfield House in Lynn Road on Monday.
But after it was pointed out that a military fuel pipeline runs through the complex it was decided the decision should be postponed until more information about the pipeline was obtained.
The retirement village would consist of a 45-bedroom care home and 13 assisted-living units.
