Strong objections have been lodged against plans to build a new gospel hall in Ashill.
Swaffham Gospel Hall Trust wants to build a new hall on land objectors say is outside the village's development boundary.
It would be a single detached building for use as a meeting hall with foyer, toilets and store room and 21 off-road parking spaces provided.
But Ashill Parish Council has unanimously opposed the scheme.
You may also want to watch:
It says it is outside the planning envelope of the village, the entrance off the B1077 is close to a dangerous bend, there is already too much traffic coming into the village on Sundays using the church and Evangelical meeting hall and that the area would be spoilt by another hall.
A further concern was residents at the Lodge Care Home opposite being disturbed at 6am on a Sunday morning.

Other objections from the general public included concerns about trees on the site, the look of the area, lighting, drainage, pedestrian access and the devaluation of property.
Highways and planning officers have not objected to the scheme, but it has been recommended to be turned down by Breckland Council members at their next development control board meeting next Monday.
