More than 150 people attended a public consultation launched by Hopkins Homes and Searles Leisure on a joint proposal to build 163 homes.
The event at Hunstanton Community Centre on Wednesday, saw plans on show for the proposed Butterfield Meadows estate, on land south of Manor Fields, on the edge of Hunstanton.
The scheme for 163 houses will include a mix of homes from two and three bedroom properties to larger family style homes. Bungalows are also proposed adjacent to existing bungalows on the Manor Fields estate.
The scheme includes a large area of open space, retaining the gap between Heacham and Hunstanton.
Iain Jamie from Hopkins Homes said: “We received a good number of comments, both positive and negative, and it was good to have the opportunity to discuss residents’ concerns in an open forum.
“The discussions enabled the project team to better understand the issues that are important to local people and this will inform the amendments that will be made to the scheme.
Residents spoken to by the Lynn News were united in opposition to the plans.
Nigel and Emma Cook who live in Philips Chase said the presentation was professional but residents had to look beyond the slick patter.
Roland Worth, who lives in Harrys Way said: “I failed to get any assurances that my views would be taken into account or conveyed to the appropriate quarter. Indeed, each representative I spoke to was at a loss to answer fundamental questions regarding building sizes, composition or lay-out.”
Clive Brewer, another Harrys Way resident, was concerned “that in the future this very narrow road might be opened up to private motor vehicles as well as to cyclists and pedestrians”.
Chris Smith, from Princess Drive, thought there should be no access at all to any development via Harrys Way.
He stressed the need for Manor Fields’ residents to work together to obtain more information while continuing to lobby town and borough councillors courteously.
David Jones, a former town councillor, thought it was unacceptable to build new houses south of Hunstanton if they had to be accessed from Heacham.
