Where will future development happen in West Norfolk, what environmental impact will it have and how is affordable housing going to be created up to 2036?
These are just some of the things being worked on for the area’s Local Plan which has just been sent by the borough council to the Planning Inspectorate to be reviewed.
This will happen for the rest of the year who will check it properly meets the needs of the area for the rest of the year before potentially being approved next spring/summer
A Local Plan for west Norfolk has taken another step closer this week as the draft document has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for review.
Richard Blunt, the borough councillor responsible for development and regeneration, said: “The Local Plan is a fundamentally-important document that has been more than 5 years in the making. It forms the basis of our aspirations for the borough – to deliver economic growth, support businesses and, of course, provide good-quality, sustainable housing for the people of west Norfolk.”
