This eerie aerial footage shows the sheer scale of the old Pontins holiday camp in Hemsby which has been closed since 2009.
Simon Carter took the video using his drone in a fly-over of the disused holiday camp.
An application to build 200 houses on the former Pontins site in Hemsby was refused by six votes to five at last week's meeting of Great Yarmouth borough council's development control committee.
Planning permission to build homes at the site has been refused four times since the camp closed with the loss of 55 jobs.
At its peak the holiday site could accommodate 2,000 people.
Former accommodation on the Pontins site comprised extensive ranges of flat roofed chalet blocks together with a large facilities building.
It had boasted a swimming pool and arcade, both of which were closed in the years before the site shut.
