An unprecedented level of development is set to transform Hethersett into a small town, the village's annual parish meeting has heard.
Parish council chairman Jacky Sutton told last week's meeting at the parish council office that the development would open the door to new infrastructure through Section 106 contributions from developers.
Ms Sutton said: 'The scale of these developments will pose not only challenges, but opportunities for the community to create new facilities including a new primary school and we hope to see a new doctors' surgery provided.
'We also want to see improvements to existing facilities that no longer provide the level of amenity required in the 21st century.'
Ms Sutton told the meeting that the parish council would consult the community about how any money from developers would be spent.

She also said the village had a problem with anti-social behaviour including dog fouling on our pavements, inconsiderate parking, particularly on pavements and verges, poor maintenance of trees and hedges and litter. She then praised a 'parish pop in' event at Hethersett Library on the second Monday of each month as a useful venue for residents to talk to their councillors, which also demonstrated the library's importance.
