A planning proposal for 43 new homes in Rackheath, Norfolk, has been submitted to Broadland District Council.

It is a hybrid application near Norwich, with primarily residential development, offering 43 homes, 12 of which would be allocated for affordable housing, and a change of use to create public open space.

The development would be very low density, with approximately 10 homes per hectare, compared to the usual 25, creating a rural village feel, whilst maintaining and enhancing the landscape, and giving each property a larger plot size.

There will also be new pedestrian routes running through the extensive space on the site, hence creating community benefits in the form of low-density, high-quality housing.
