You have just over a week to have your say on the proposals in the Greater Norwich Local Plan for housing developments in our area. At the moment there is just one in Claxton, with the proposal to build up to 8 houses on agricultural land across Church Lane from Claxton House. However there is another much larger proposal for up to 200 houses to be built on land above and behind the New Inn pub in Rockland St Mary, which would have a significant impact on traffic, schools, surgeries and other facilities and would also be likely to affect the flow of water along Hellington Beck.
As of 14 March only two people have commented on the Claxton proposal. If you wish to make your views known you have until 5pm on Thursday 22 March. Far more have commented on the other proposal with the number of people objecting currently being 12 times the number supporting the proposal.
This is your chance to make your views known. Whatever you think of the proposals the County Council is giving you the chance to say so. In 8 days’ time it will be too late. The consultation is at http://www.gnlp.org.uk/have-your-say/ and the registration process is straightforward.
