Caston is a desirable village that falls under Breckland Council. It is a generally level site and planning consent was obtained on 13 December 2018 (3PL/2017/1267/O) for the development of 5 dwellings. The design details have been left for further discussion but within the design criteria, these have indicated 2 x 4-bedroom dwellings and 3 x 3-bedroom dwellings. It also incorporates the development of a 22 space car park for use by the primary school on land to the front. The intention is that the primary school will take over maintenance of the car park.
