Villagers fighting proposals to build a £4m composting plant on the edge of Marsham will hand in a petition against the proposals tomorrow.
Nearly 220 signatures have been collected calling on Norfolk County Council to turn down the plans.
Local concerns include increased traffic, smell, noise and the industrialisation of a rural area.
Lesley Willcocks, who is leading the village's campaign said: “We hope quite a few people from the village will come along when we hand it in to show strength of feeling.

“Villagers have really embraced the petition and, since we had the public meeting, a lot more people have been asking a lot more questions.
“Lots of people have also written letters to both Broadland District Council and Norfolk County Council.”
