What will your community look like in 15 years' time?  North Norfolk District Council is currantly putting together the planning policies that will govern development in the District for the next 15 years.  Now local people have a chance to say what they think about the proposals, and can influence the final documents.  This set of documents, called the Local Development Framework (LDF), will spell out what kind of new development can go where in North Norfolk.  And because it dictates where new homes and businesses can be put, it will have a long-lasting impact on the shape, character, vitality and sustainability of local communities and neighbourhoods.

"This will affect everyone in the District," said Clive Stockton, NNDC's Cabinet member for Planning Policy, "whether or not they intend to do any building work themselves.  Planning policies have a bearing on what goes on in a town or village, because they influence the kind of workplaces and community facilities you find there, as well as the number of households.  There are proposals in the draft LDF that cover the whole District and there are site proposals for each of the larger settlements and I can't stress enough how important it is that North Norfolk residents look at these proposals, consider them carefully and then tell us what they think of them."

The North Norfolk community has already influenced the LDF, as consultation meetings were held in North Norfolk's major settlements in 2005 to find out people's aspirations for development in their localities.  Since then, a Council working group has been putting together a set of policy approaches that seek to meet the demands of national planning guidance as well as the community's wishes.

The website gives access to the LDF's proposals, which are organised into two documents: the Core Strategy (for District-wide policies on topics such as housing, economy, tourism, flood risk, redundant military bases and building design) and Site Specific Proposals showing in detail the proposed allocations of land for different uses.

The LDF will also be available for inspection at North Norfolk libraries, and people can or collect paper copies or CD-ROMS from NNDC offices during office hours.  The documents can be posted on CD-ROM (for free) or as paper copies (for a charge of 10 to cover postage and packing).  Please call the Planning Policy Team on 01263 516318 to request copies.
