Plans have been revealed for where more than 4,000 homes could be built in Norfolk.

Council documents detailing Great Yarmouth Borough Council's draft local plan have shown the proposed sites earmarked for development in the area.

They include 164 homes and 36 plots for "roll-back" properties in Hemsby - a community under threat by coastal erosion where homes are having to be bulldozed due to being at risk of collapsing into the sea.

Major developments for the area also include 600 homes on land off Links Road in Gorleston, 1,100 homes west of Jack Chase Way in Caister-on-Sea and 280 homes at North Quay in Great Yarmouth.

The local plan will be used to guide planning decisions until 2041.

It has set a target of building 360 homes per year, distributing 45pc of the new housing growth to the urban area of Great Yarmouth, 20pc to Caister and 35pc to the other villages in the borough.

Hemsby's roll-back properties are proposed to be built on greenfield sites around Scratby and the village as a priority.

Other key aspects of the local plan include increasing the amount of affordable housing required to be built at new developments from 10-20pc to 25pc borough-wide.

Environmental measures are also set to be brought in which include a new policy requiring 20pc biodiversity net gain on greenfield sites and another policy to protect dark sky sites.

A public consultation is expected to begin on March 13 and it will run for eight weeks.

The comments will help inform the final local plan, which will then be assessed by the Planning Inspectorate before it is approved.
