Norfolk Homes, a specialist regional housebuilder, has started building homes on this site in the attractive market town of Holt in North Norfolk. The 85 new houses are a mix of private and affordable homes and are being built to high-standards using a range of local materials and influences such as flint. The site is a few minutes’ walk from one of Norfolk’s most thriving towns which is home to Gresham’s School, one of the UK’s oldest public schools.
Landform won consent for the development by challenging the local plan allocation, shortening the decision-making process by taking an open approach to local consultation. After much debate with the council, we were able to demonstrate to the Planning Inspector at Examination in Public that the site was appropriate for development.
