DISPLAY AND BRIEFINGS IN HUNSTANTON HERITAGE CENTRE

Representations are being sought on the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk's Local Plan Review that began in 2016 with a call for sites and policy change suggestions. If the plan is found to be sound, it will be the blueprint against which all planning applications for the area will be determined over the next 15 years, along with national planning policy.

In addition to the main document containing 41 policies, there are 29 supporting documents (some of which are over 300 pages in length) so it is difficult to summarise. Nevertheless, it is important to be involved because the Local Plan will direct development in the Borough until - and perhaps beyond - 2036. The younger members of our communities potentially have the most to lose if the plan is deficient.

With this in mind, a special display of maps and documents has been produced and is available to view in Hunstanton Heritage Centre (open 14:00-16:00 on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays) so that local residents can learn more about developments currently being built or that may be built in the future.

In addition, briefing sessions led by Andrew Murray have been arranged for Thursday,

2nd September at 19:00 and Sunday, 5th September at 16:00 in the Heritage Centre where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and make your views known.
