And there it was gone...

The half completed building on The Street, close to the junction with Dukes Lane has now been demolished. Graham Lond-Caulk who built the property said it was all a bit of a misunderstanding really. He said had obtained permission to build a garage and storeroom but ideally wanted to turn it into a retirement home for himself and his wife Nina. The permission to erect any building on the site had always been opposed by the parish council but he said under his “permitted rights” he was able to erect a garage and storeroom. Breckland Council however while agreeing to the building as a garage and storeroom, opposed a residence on a number of grounds and when it went to appeal, Breckland’s decision was upheld. Mr Lond-Caulk was apparently minded to fight on but finally decided against and with some newly acquired heavy machinery he decided the best course of action was for him to take the property down himself.
