Councillors have deferred a decision on whether to back proposals to turn a West Norfolk livery yard into a camping site.

Members of the West Norfolk Council planning committee deferred a decision on the scheme for the Snettisham Park site, on Bircham Road, when they met in Lynn on Monday.

The committee visited the site yesterday morning before resuming discussions on the proposal.

Applicants Stanton Farms Ltd argue the plan would help to sustain the farm business and provide much-needed tourist accommodation in the area.

But community leaders are concerned about the safety risk to walkers which they claim would be increased if the plan is approved.

They have called for traffic travelling to the site to be diverted away from the village altogether if permission is granted.
