Plans for a new Co-op store at the site of the former police station at Gashouse Hill have been shelved in favour of a proposal for new homes.

An application for full planning permission has been made to Broadland District Council for nine houses and the associated access and car parking.

The original proposal for a new Co-op was accepted by Broadland District Council and work commenced, including the demolition of the former police house and highways office but that has now been halted for several months.

The Town Council said it had been in regular contact with the district council regarding this, who in turn have been chasing the developers.

That original application will not now proceed and the alternative planning application has been submitted.

The residential development includes a mix of five, three-bedroom semi-detached houses, one four-bedroomed semi and three, three-bedroom terraced properties.

The scheme has been designed to address council officer’s comments at the pre-application stage and to preserve and enhance the appearance of the Aylsham Conservation Area within which the site is located.

The application will be discussed by Aylsham Town Council at its meeting next week.
