The plot of land extending to 0.13 acres with the benefit of full planning permission is located in the heart of the village of Kessingland, just off of the High Street.  Planning permission has been granted for 4 semi-detached dwellings.

The land is currently vacant and has historically been used as a car park for the Queens Head public house.


A planning application (REF: DC/16/2879/FUL) was submitted on 22nd July 2016 and was granted on the 7th October 2016 for the construction of 4 semi-detached dwellings.

The proposed development utilises the existing plot footprint.  One pair of dwellings front the High Street, whilst the remaining 2 dwellings front onto Market Place.  All four properties will be two storey in height and provide private gardens and car parking.
