A coastal leisure resort with more than 600 static caravans has been given permission to expand.

Searles of Hunstanton has been granted lawful development approval for 23 extra lodges on its site on the southern outskirts of Hunstanton.

Planning permission was agreed in 2006 to extend its golf course and also add timber-clad holiday lodges on land west of Hunstanton Road, at Heacham.

More than 100 lodges were added to the site, which became known as Redgate Park.

But the original permission did not set a limit on the number of lodges which could be built.

Now West Norfolk Council has agreed the extra lodges would not be in breach of the 2006 ruling.

A planning statement said: "It is apparent that the development description and planning conditions – the key statutory, binding aspects of a decision notice – do not state or restrict the number of units to be stationed or their layout."
