The homes will be built on land adjacent to Twinwood Cottage, Lynn Road, and attracted few objections when the plans were submitted.

Planners have put tough conditions on the development including archaeology, waste management and construction timings.

The cul-de-sac formation of the estate includes a mix of homes including four two-bedroom homes, six three-bedroom homes and nine four-bedroom homes.

The area is described as predominantly agricultural and planners say has been used for personal equestrian purposes.
