Permission has been granted for a bungalow accessed by a single track lane despite safety warnings from the Highways Authority.

Seven residents also registered their concerns in regard to the bungalow to be built to the rear of properties on Wingfield Road, Lakenheath, and accessed by a track.

In their report the Highways Authority said: “If two vehicles were to meet along the access lane, the vehicle entering the site may have to reverse back onto the highway. The access road is located within a junction and so there is a reasonable risk of a collision occurring.”

Forest Heath District Council’s planning committee voted to approve the two bedroom bungalow on Wednesday.
