Although in its infancy the regeneration
process for Sheringham has now started with the forming of what have been described as the
Focus Groups. These five groups, Environment and Infrastructure, Economy, Learning and
Skills, Community and Communications cover the broad topic areas which people have said
they would like to address in the Regeneration Process for Sheringham. We are eager
to include as wide a section of the community as possible and we are actively looking for
people to join in the process. Those who have become involved have done so in their own
time their reward being the opportunity to have their say and to participate in the debate
about possible futures for Sheringham. If you would like to become involved or just
make a comment please contact any of the free papers, or contact anyone on the list at the
end of this article. This is your chance to put your ideas or contribute to the overall
debate and make an impact on the way we live and the way we develop our town for the
future. This process to be successful has to be promoted and managed by the community and
everybodys view is not only welcome but needed to make the process meaningful.
If you know someone who either you or they believe can contribute to the debate please
encourage them to make contact and put their views, and not wait until its too late for
them to influence the process. You can make a difference and you really can have an impact
on the process. Various mediums are being set up to keep you the Public
informed, but please be patient as it does take time to make them operational. These are:
1. Any of the free papers and the North Norfolk News
2. A website www.sheringhamplus.co.uk with an email address,
3. The notice boards on Otterndorf Green, the Council Offices, Morris Street Car Park, the

the process and making your choice, with your voice.
