Scheme deferred for more details on financial case

An application to build executive homes at Burgham Park was deferred so councillors could be provided with more information on the financial case.

This was because the bid to build 14 detached homes on land next to Burgham Park Golf and Leisure Club, near Felton, would not usually be permitted in an area of open countryside, but it was put forward as an enabling development for the wider unfinished scheme of holiday lodges, known as Northumbrian Hills, as well as a new clubhouse and golf academy.

The permission would have been subject to the completion of an agreement to secure all proceeds from the sale/development of the land being invested into that development, but members of the north area planning committee wanted to see more of the details.
