The Local Plan has been reviewed and updated to provide a strategy and detail for development across west Norfolk up to 2036.
Council planners are now seeking the views of members of the public, businesses and other interested parties on the revisions to plan.
The Local Plan is about looking at where development could take place across the borough.
Some of the main points identified include the need to encourage different types of development including self-build and affordable housing. A clear growth corridor has been identified along the A10 and main railway line to London and Cambridge. Also included are policies designed to protect the environment and to stimulate jobs and employment.
The consultation remains open until 29 April 2019. Online comments can be made by visiting the draft Local Plan review consultation page. All comments must be received by 5:00pm on 29 April 2019.
In areas where a neighbourhood plan exists, the parish or neighbourhood would be responsible for seeking the necessary development sites.
