The consultation process behind the Major Housing Project
Initial consultation on the project began in July 2014 with the:
- Environment Agency
- Internal Drainage Board
- Norfolk Wildlife Trust
- Natural England
- Norfolk County Council's Development Services
In September 2014, the project proposals were presented for consultation through a public exhibition and online survey.
People were asked to have their say on three key elements:
- the proposed new access road between Edward Benefer Way and Lynnsport
- King's Lynn Internal Drainage Board's new drainage scheme and pumping station
- our development of housing sites in the Lynnsport/Marsh Lane area
Further public consultation days took place on 11 December 2014, 9 January and 4 and 22 June 2015, specifically in relation to two sites known as the Marsh Lane site and Lynnsport 3 (see site maps at the bottom of this page).
Comments could also be submitted online for several weeks following each public event, with the plans available to view via our website.
Most project consultations have been well attended and views have been used to inform the further development of the plans, including the withdrawal of Lynnsport 2 from the project.
A Major Housing Consultative Group has also been established made up of local stakeholders. The minutes for the first three meetings are available at the bottom of this page.
Further meetings will take place to coincide with each planning application, with sub groups meeting if necessary to discuss different issues. All interested parties will be kept up to date with all the issues being considered and will have the opportunity to express their views and provide input using their specialist knowledge and expertise to help shape housing development in these areas.
Further public consultations will be publicised as planning applications for each stage of the Major Housing Project are prepared.
Consultations will be published on our Have Your Say page.
