Residents of Kirkleatham fear a new development could turn the area into a “theme park”.
Plans for a multi-million pound walled garden, catering academy, restaurant and shop are due before the council on Thursday for decision.
The plans also include an events marquee and a 300-space car park and is expected to create 80 jobs and more than 100 apprenticeships.
But according to some residents, locals are unhappy with what's planned.
The main objections are the marquee, car park and the traffic it could cause.
The council has received 12 letters of objection but they're still being recommended to approve the scheme.
Customers have been thrown out of a pub in Loftus for swearing.
The Arlington Hotel has a zero tolerance policy on bad language.
So when some customers were overheard swearing last week, everyone was told to get out and the pub closed early.
The no swearing policy came into effect in April this year in all pubs run by the Samuel Smith Old Brewery.
The policy means managers have to refuse service to any customers who continue to use bad language in any of its pubs.
Gisborough Hall are looking to take on new staff.
It comes after recent developments after becoming a fully-independent hotel for the first time since it opened.
Now it's planning more investments in its meeting and events space to try and attract more firms to the venue.
They're looking to take on more staff after the development of a multi-million pound spa which will get underway this year.
