A Broadland Police spokesman said: “Officers are aware of concerns regarding noise from vehicles gathering on Broadland Business Park as well as those that use excess speed on the NDR.

“We ask that you remain patient with us when using the 101 number, especially at peak times over the weekend. Officers are taking enforcement action as often as they are able to.

“We are working with the County Council and Business Park Estate Team to address these issues. We thank local residents and the general public for their support.”
