Developer Taylor Wimpey submitted an application to build the properties on land off Benson Lane.
It claimed 30 per cent of the detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, would be affordable properties.
But Wakefield Council received 91 letters of objection and two petitions signed by a total of 191 people.
They all objected to the plans claiming the development could create seven years of noise, dirt and disturbance and there is a lack of demand for new properties near social housing. Normanton councillor David Dagger was among those who objected.
But the council’s planning and highways committee approved the plans at a meeting yesterday.
As part of the plans, the developer will donate £529,958 to Normanton Common Primary Academy and £98,685 to the Parks and Public Realm, which would improve Haw Hill Park.
