Plans to add 25 homes to a controversial project have been described as "dangerous" and "ill-considered".

The proposal makes up phase two of a development on land east of Rectory Road, just south of the Bure Valley railway line in Coltishall.

It would add 25 homes - including eight affordable properties - to the ongoing Crocus application for 30 dwellings at the same site.

But locals have hit out at the "ill-considered" plans, warning further properties would add more pressure to an already "barely functioning" village.

"The school is already full to the point of bursting," one homeowner wrote to Broadland District Council's planning committee.

"And the doctors' surgery never has any availability for appointments.

"I have also NEVER in the eight years I have lived here seen so much traffic. 

"Adding more houses in Coltishall will only add to this awful problem!"

The application comes as Crocus await a decision on phase one of the project - a scheme previously described as "absolute insanity". 

If approved, the homes would comprise a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom houses and two to three-bedroom bungalows. 

The dwellings will not exceed two storeys in height.

"Coltishall can barely function with the hold-ups going through the village," one local told the district council.

"And I would question whether the school and doctors' surgery can accommodate the extra families who would be living in the 55 houses."

Another homeowner added: "The GP surgery and good primary school are not only already stretched to capacity but are the reason for the presence of so many pedestrians, many of them children, in Rectory Road.

"Adding another 100 souls and their cars would make it a dangerous rat-run, put undue pressure on the village's facilities and amenities and is not wanted by local people nor is it needed."

In total, the project has received 39 public objections and one from Coltishall Parish Council. 

It is hoped a decision can be made on the application by the end of November.
