Plans have been submitted to build 23 new homes in a South Norfolk village on land next to a Grade II listed building.
Norwich-based developers FW Properties want to build a mixture of two-storey houses and bungalows on a plot of land on Bungay Road in Hempnall.
The 1.47 hectare site is to the west of the village hall and playing field and next to the Willows, a 17th-18th century timber framed and brick house that is Grade II listed and an agricultural barn that is also of historic interest.
The plans include 17 two-storey houses ranging from one to five bedrooms, and a six bungalows, four with three bedrooms and two with two bedrooms.
Details submitted to South Norfolk Council state that the access road from Bungay Road and some of the planned bungalows had been sited to lessen the impact on the historic buildings.
