Plans to expand the Lakeside Country Club at Lyng with 10 new holiday units could be accepted despite some objections.
The holiday complex already comprises a development of 30 lodges together with indoor and outdoor leisure facilities in 27 hectares of former gravel pit.
The latest application is for full planning permission for 10 units in two three-storey blocks as well as retrospective permission for an internal access road.
A report to Breckland Council's development control committee, which meets on November 23, records that objections were received from Lyng parish council expressing their doubts over the need for further holiday accommodation, as well as the Environment Agency on grounds that flood risks have not been properly considered. Two letters were also received raising concerns about additional noise, traffic safety and maintenance of the access road.
One letter of support was received referring to the benefits to local businesses.
The report, which recommends approval subject to flooding risks being addressed, states that considering the recent investment in the complex to develop it as a major attraction for fishing and wildlife breaks a need for the proposed development has been demonstrated. It adds that 'it is considered that the proposals would not have a significant impact on either the appearance of the surrounding landscape or on the wildlife interests on nearby designated sites'.
