Plans for 21 new homes in Attleborough are being tipped for approval next week, despite objections from town leaders and local residents.

National house builder Taylor Wimpey wants to construct the homes on an infill plot off Teasel Road, which would include a new access road and area of open space.

Breckland Councillors are being recommended to approve the development on Monday, despite opposition from 25 residents and Attleborough Town Council.

Objectors are concerned about the overdevelopment of the area, increased traffic movement, and lack of developer contributions to town infrastructure.

But district council planning officers say that the plans for the 0.6ha area would relate well to the existing area and the developer is already being asked to contribute �71,000 towards school provision and �1,200 to library services.

County Council highways officers have raised no objection, but have asked for a �90 per home contribution for walking and cycling initiatives.
