Land with outline permission for 120 new properties has been sold to an unknown developer.
West Norfolk council agreed last year the site, off Cromer Road, could be built on.
Hunstanton Town Council supported proposals for the land, which were unveiled at a public event last summer. They include 24 affordable properties.
Nine letters of objection were received, on grounds including increased traffic, and the devlopement’s possible impact on nearby wildlife sites.
But councillors gave it the go-ahead after a report said 120 houses could be accomodated on the site without causing “detrimental neighbour amenity issues”.
The as yet unknown purchaser will have to apply for full planning permission before work can begin on the site.
They will also have to draw up a schedule of when work will be carried out and how noise and dust from the site will be controlled.
