A new application has been submitted for the demolition of Holt police station.

Norfolk Constabulary already has outline permission to demolish the existing building, on Norwich Road, and build eight homes in its place – an application granted last year. This new application has been submitted to North Norfolk District Council due to a “change in the red line boundary” and the applicant had been advised to resubmit its application.

A spokesman for NNDC’s planning department said: “This is a new application due to changes around ownership of some of the land potentially affected. Therefore, it will be fully assessed as a new application.”

Homes would be a mixture of one, two and three bedroom properties and no higher than two storeys.

The plan, submitted by Chaplin Farrant, suggests that the nearby fire station is in line for expansion and improvements and would be able to “house both the fire brigade and the police”.

The application goes on to say: “Therefore, the police service would not be degraded in the locality and the loss of the use of the building would not therefore result in the loss of the police service as a community facility in the locality.”

The plans (P0/20/0666) can be viewed on the NNDC website.
