A Norfolk MP is calling for plans to expand a school in King's Lynn to be put on hold, ahead of a meeting to determine the application.
Norfolk County Council and the Roman Catholic Diocese of East Anglia want to extend the buildings at St Martha's RC Primary School in Field Lane, Gaywood, so it can increase pupil numbers from 210 to 420.
West Norfolk Council has recommended refusal, but the county council has the final decision and there's a meeting at County Hall on Friday.
North-West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham wants plans to be put on hold. He said: 'I think it's completely unacceptable for local residents for the school to be doubled in size. I have written to the county council to ask for the plans to be put on hold.'
A Norfolk County Council spokesman said: 'Members of the planning regulatory committee will discuss this application at its meeting on Friday.'
