The site, located in the Heacham conservation area, was originally occupied by a modern bungalow. The bungalow, on its enlarged plot was not typical or suitable to the conservation area. The proposed development grasped at the opportunity to provide six new dwellings
suited to and taking keen inspiration from the conservation surroundings.
Traditional cottages utilising carrstone from local quarries, clay pantiles and timber windows fit perfectly in the environment and are complementary to the conservation area. The form and character of the development is typical of its surroundings with differing rooflines and a structural ‘in-out’ appearance common to the area and providing architectural interest. The development also included the provision of a new footpath linking both sides of the village highway safely.
