A businessman who has spent millions of pounds on a project to restore a Norfolk period mansion is trying to get permission for
38 homes to fund the £4.5m cost of finishing the work.
Stephen Vince has spent many years bringing the imposing Bylaugh Hall back to life.
The stately home was built in 1850, but a century later it was partially demolished and became run down.

Since the restoration project was undertaken, Bylaugh now hosts a range of functions, conferences and events. But more phases of the work need to be done at an estimated cost of £4.5m.
Mr Vince has sent plans to Breckland Council for a total of 38 homes - a mix of private dwellings, social housing and second homes - on 15 acres of farmland in the north east part of Bylaugh Park.

The properties would range from two to six bedrooms.
In his application, Mr Vince said the project was needed to fund the remaining two phases of work on the hall.
The scheme has been re-submitted after a previous one was withdrawn to allow more details to be provided.
There would also be a shared community building, including a swimming pool, steam room and jacuzzi and gym for residents.
The application says traditional materials would be used for the new properties.
