As local residents will likely be aware, North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) is currently producing a new Local Plan which will guide development in North Norfolk up to 2036. A six-week consultation period on the Local Plan is due to take place soon (from Tuesday 7th May to Wednesday 19th June 2019), giving local residents, businesses and organisations an opportunity to consider the content of the First Draft Local Plan and to let the district council know if any changes are considered necessary. Further information can be found in the Notice Of Draft Local Plan Consultation.
During this consultation period, a drop-in event will be held at which proposals outlined in the Draft Local Plan may be discussed with district council planning officers. This event is due to take place on Thursday 23rd May, 2.30pm to 7.30pm, at the Broadland Youth & Community Centre, Stalham Road, NR12 8DJ.
North Norfolk District Council is keen to receive all feedback on the First Draft Local Plan, whether local residents object to or support an element of the plan or simply wish to make general comments. From Tuesday 7th May, comments can be submitted to NNDC via http://consult.north-norfolk.gov.uk/portal. In the meantime, further information about the First Draft Local Plan can be found at www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/localplan.
Hoveton Parish Council will consider the content of the First Draft Local Plan during the advertised consultation period, and will provide feedback to North Norfolk District Council as part of the consultation process. Though your Parish Council endeavours to keep local residents updated on all matters relating to the Local Plan, residents are asked to please note that Hoveton Parish Council is not a planning authority, but is merely a consultee in terms of planning matters. Your Parish Council has not been formally consulted on the First Draft Local Plan by North Norfolk District Council and it has not had input into any decisions taken by the district council in relation to the Local Plan.
