Parish councillors in Hethersett have decried the parlous state of a major gateway into the village.
At a council meeting one member, Shane Hull, brought up concerns about the Steeple Tower development, which he claimed was beset by dangerous and dilapidated brickwork, broken and chipped paving, a shoddy bus shelter and broken flowerpots.
Mr Hull said: 'With the village ever growing, Steeple Tower is a major entry point to our village and it's a site for sore eyes with benches falling apart, dangerous brickwork and broken paving.
'The bus shelter is in disrepair and other seats are rusted and corroded.
'It doesn't give a good impression of our village either to local people or visitors.'
