A Norfolk holiday park has been granted permission to hold events despite fears wrestling shows could bring in the "wrong clientele".

Cherry Tree Holiday Park, a Parkdean resort in the rural village of Burgh Castle, applied to Great Yarmouth Borough Council to make variations to its licence.

It wanted to host a range of events including wrestling, live music, dancing and sporting contests until 2am.

Previously Parkdean had to apply for a temporary licence to hold these activities.

But the move prompted backlash from locals who feared it would lead to noise disturbing their peace and quiet.

At a licencing committee meeting this week, Sharon Hollis, who lives close by, spoke of her concerns.

She worried the permanent licence could lead to more frequent events like wrestling shows being held and also feared it could "encourage a different clientele from families", who are the predominant visitors of the park.

Some GYBC councillors also worried crowds could be louder at these events.

Brian Swan, chairman of Burgh Castle Parish Council, urged Parkdean to ensure that guests to these events would be "strictly customers only".

A representative from Parkdean explained that the park did not intend to hold more events than it is currently offering.

He said tickets for the events would only be available to customers of the holiday park and not open for anyone externally to purchase.

He also highlighted that in the last four years, Cherry Tree Holiday Park had not received any complaints from locals during the 40 events it had held.

Following the debate, councillors discussed the matter further in private before coming to a decision.

Members agreed to grant the licence with the condition that outdoor wrestling events ended at 11pm due to concerns about audience noise.

Parkdean agreed with the conditions but said it had "no intention" to hold outdoor wrestling shows anyway.
