Secretary of state calls in 1,200-home plans after Historic England objections

Broadway Malyan-designed plans for a residential-led mixed-use scheme in the centre of Norwich are to face a public inquiry after being called in by housing secretary James Brokenshire.

The practice’s Anglia Square redevelopment – approved by Norwich council in December last year – promised 1,200 new homes, a hotel, cinema, multi-storey car parks, a place of worship and ground-floor retail and commercial space.

It is earmarked for a shopping centre site that incorporates the brutalist Sovereign House development, which once housed HM Stationery Office, the Hollywood Cinema, and several car parks.
