Two campsites are looking to the future after planning bosses approved their applications.
Brick Kiln Farm Campsite at Ashill was granted permission to almost double the size of its site, while Spring Farm Campsite can now allow caravans onto its site near Shipdham.
The decisions were made at a meeting of Breckland Council's planning committee on Monday.
Spring Farm Campsite, which has ten tent pitches and five motor home pitches, has operated with the Camping and Caravanning Club since May 2014 but at the planning meeting its owners also gained permission for the site to operate independently.
The application was granted on the condition that permission for caravan access applied to the applicant, and not the site.
The family-run Brick Kiln Campsite, near Ashill, currently has 45 pitches for caravans and tents, but owners Martin and Wendy Spaul will now be extending to 100 pitches using an adjacent 1.25 hectares of land.
As well as up to 55 additional pitches, the campsite's extension will include two new toilet and shower blocks and a recreational area.
