Planners have given the go ahead for six detached homes to be built in Ormesby despite objections about access and ruined views.
The application site in Decoy Road lies outside, but next to, the village development boundary, adding to concerns.
But officials who advised members to support the bid said the number would contribute to the borough's overall supply of houses in a 'primary village' which was expected to take 30pc of new housing.
Concerns ranged from fears about flooding, loss of outlook, access, and 'endless tractors.'
One objector said 'with all the proposed building in this area it is going to end up like Bradwell. I do hope not.'
