Plans for a rural holiday park with 46 cabins have been turned down.

An applicant named in planning papers as D Symington applied to develop land at Barwick, between Docking and Fakenham.

They said in a planning statement: "This application seeks full planning permission for the for the development of the land at Frogs Hall, Barwick for use as a holiday park.

"The proposal comprises of the change of use of the land to station up to 46 cabins - falling within the definition of a caravan as set out in the Caravan Sites Act 1968 - and the use of the existing dwelling on site, known as Frogs Hall, for use as a managers house and shop.

"The proposal is for holiday accommodation, which is a tourism use, within a rural location. It will therefore enhance the visitor economy."

Some 13 objections were received, with one letter of support.

Stanhoe Parish Council said: "Stanhoe PC is unanimous in objecting to this development and judging by the communications received from other village residents, this sentiment is widely held at the local level.

"Frogs Hall would be the third camp within 1.5 miles with direct access to the B1454, and the sixth holiday accommodation in the area.

"Stanhoe has no infrastructure, we are not on mains sewerage, we have no public facilities other than a village hall and an upmarket gastro pub. There are no shops or other public facilities." 

Farming company GW Harrold and partners, which is based on Barwick Road, said: "As a fully-operational arable farm, we have frequent traffic of large vehicles such as tractors, sprayers, combines, and deliveries.

"During the summer months, when the proposed holiday park would be at its busiest, our farm traffic would increase even further, creating significant safety concerns on this narrow single road with no passing bays."

Objector Kevin Casey added: "This is a farming area and there are limited amenities in the area to support significant numbers of extra visitors."

West Norfolk Council's planning portal says the application has been refused.
