A developer has withdrawn plans for housing at a redundant Victorian water tower in Diss.

Applicant AWG Land Holdings had submitted its second application to change the landmark tower in Louie's Lane into two maisonettes.

But the plans, which would have also seen the construction five homes on the site, were withdrawn before a South Norfolk Council planning meeting last week.

The scheme had been recommended for refusal by officers because of the cramped design, lack of parking spaces, and impact on neighbours of the 'overbearing' development.
