Plans for a 24-home residential development have met with opposition from a parish council.

Norfolk County Council has lodged an outline application with access only, for determination with North Norfolk District Council.

The development would be at High Station in Norwich Road, Cromer.

In documents submitted to the district council, Northrepps Parish Council, as a consultee, raises strong concerns regarding the application.

It says: “The access onto Norwich road is already difficult, especially in the busy summer months.

“Members feel that the increased number of vehicles from the development will make exiting this site and also nearby Station Road even more hazardous, particularly when turning right towards Cromer.

“Concern was also raised that the road passes several existing businesses which attract many customers/patients to the site. Pedestrian safety must also be ensured.

“A resident has also advised that there are rare orchids on the site which should be protected.”
