Published by Chris Craddock at 4:47pm 11th October 2018.

A planning appeal which could have led to 200 homes being built near Fakenham has been turned down.

It's been going back and forth for the last three years.

North Norfolk District Council have argued it wasn't sustainable.


But Indigo Planning kept putting the plans for Sculthorpe forward.

The withdrawal means that we will not see a long public inquiry over this.

Cllr Sue Arnold, Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing, said:

“I welcome the decision by Amstel to withdraw their appeal.

“Whilst the Council needs to ensure it is planning for sufficient homes across the District, the proposal in Sculthorpe was in the wrong place and was of the wrong scale for a community of Sculthorpe’s size.

“Had it been granted, the scheme would undoubtedly have undermined delivery of planned housing and employment growth in Fakenham and elsewhere.
