More than 50 homes could be built in Fenland villages if developers are given the green light from planners.

Plans have been lodged for three developments in Emneth, Upwell and Walsoken.

Stephen Wadsley has applied to West Norfolk Council to build 20 homes, including four affordable units, on land south and west of Elm High Road and Outwell Road, Emneth.

The application’s design and access statement says: “It has been highlighted that provision should be made for a number of houses to serve and support the service centre of Wisbech. The proposed site sits between Emneth and Elm and services can be used from both villages to aid sustainability as a whole.

“Access into the villages of Emneth and Elm can be achieved on foot, using existing footpaths on the opposite side of Outwell Road.”

Edwin Broad is hoping to build 22 homes on land on the east side of Pius Drove, Upwell, close to a farm.

Four of the homes will be classed as affordable to be adopted by a housing association.

The application states: “The existing organic farm is able to downsize to a more manageable company upon the land that the client will retain to the north of the development site.

“Some existing buildings will be moved from the site over to the northern section and this will be accessed from the development site as shown upon the proposed site plan.”

P Goodale has also applied to West Norfolk Council to build 16 homes on land east of Burrettgate Road, Walsoken.

The design and access statement says: “This outline planning application is for 16 building plots in linear form. Four social houses will be served by a private drive to the north of the site. The remainder will be served by a mixture of single access or dual access driveways.

“The development will infill one cluster of dwellings to another one on the east side of Burrettgate Road, keeping to the same rough building line and also following the curve of the road.”
