Plans to convert a former racing and livery yard into a holiday complex have been deferred after residents raised traffic concerns.

West Norfolk Council’s planning committee ordered a site visit on April Gingell’s bid for 39 log cabins and a clubhouse with pool and gym at a yard in The Green, North Runcton at a meeting on Monday.

The scheme, including plans to have rare breed animals such as Iron age pigs and Red Poll cattle, was recommended for approval.

But parish council vice-chairman Rick Morrish said the project will create up to 100 traffic movements a day in the village and 30,000 annually.

And resident Keith Longhurst asked: “Has anyone from the planning department seen the access or the impact this will have on the village and its residents or are they not concerned?”

Gill Sargeant supported the application, but warned nearby roads would not be able to cope with the traffic.

The committee also deferred a decision on Cobb Europe’s bid to put up seven replacement chicken breeding sheds in Fen Drove Farm in Wretton.
