Proposals for a holiday development including 25 vacation lodges in Garboldisham have been opposed by two parish councils.
Plans submitted to Breckland Council by Parker Planning Services include a cluster of single-storey lodges and a reception building with a shop, café and bike hire facilities on land off Hopton Road.
Garboldisham and Blo' Norton councils argue the development would have a negative impact on neighbours, wildlife sites and pose road safety problems.
In its submission Blo' Norton Parish Council stated: "Access is close to a dangerous bend in a 60mph speed limit section of road. Local residents are aware of this problem but visitors to the site would not be, thus increasing the likelihood of a serious accident."
Garboldisham Parish Council stated: "We have grave concerns over aspects of the plan. We are concerned the site is set between two county wildlife sites of major ecological importance."
