Plans have been submitted for nine self-build / custom homes in the village of Norton, near Thurston.

The project has been submitted by Ash Property Partnership, and would sit on land off Ixworth Road.

The planning statement for the project, prepared by Phil Cobbold Planning, says: "The proposal will help the council to address a current shortfall in the provision of self-build/custom build homes.

"Secondly, the site is in a sustainable location where future residents will be within walking distance of local services and public transport connections.

"Furthermore, the land is centrally located in the village, it adjoins existing properties, and could be developed without having a significant material impact on the character and appearance of the village."

A decision on the plans is expected by the end of May.
