Diss Town Council has recommended refusal on outline plans for up to 90 homes to be built on land at Sandy Lane, currently used by an agricultural business.
Frontier Agriculture, which operates from the site, has submitted plans to demolish its buildings, including silos, on the site to make way for the homes.
But Diss Town Council’s planning committee said the extra traffic on the local roads the development would bring would be unacceptable, particularly at the narrow railway bridge which leads into Frenze Hall Lane, and on Victoria Road.
It said pedestrian access to the town centre would be poor, it was concerned at the extra burden on the medical centre and it thought 90 homes would be too many for the site.
South Norfolk Council is yet to decide on the plans.
