A major housing development will be built in Thorpe St Andrew with one access point after a close vote went in favour of a housing developer.
Pinebanks landowner Berliet already had planning permission to build 231 homes on the site with two ways in and out.
But a legal wrangle around Henby Way meant it needed permission to change the plans so the development could start with just one assess point at Hillcrest Road.
Members of Broadland District Council's planning committee today voted to allow work to begin, despite 102 letters and emails of objection from nearby families and 70 objectors attending the meeting.
Seven were for the proposal and six were against. Two members of the committee were absent.

It emerged last month that another developer, Taylor Wimpey, owns a legal covenant covering the other planned access point at Henby Way.
Ocubis, development manager for Berliet, have said they are keen to get started on building at the old Norwich Union sports centre but do want to build the site with two access points.
