Plans have been submitted to build 25 single storey holiday lodges, a reception building and groundskeeper building on land off Hopton Road on the edge of the village.

Eleven of the lodges would be two-bed and 14 would be three-bed. The reception building would house a shop and café as well as bike hire.

Most of the 3.22 hectare site is currently grassland with a number of redundant outbuildings, including some sheds and a row of dog kennels. Planning permission was previously granted in 1996 for the land to be turned into a wildlife park.

In their application to Breckland Council, the developers state: “Careful consideration has been given to the regeneration of this degraded site, the removal of the ungainly existing buildings and the introduction of low density lodges of high quality with a strong design philosophy and high regard to the setting and qualities of the associated surrounding landscape and ecological value.”
