I have been reading the working party report on the Local Development Framework for Sheringham Appendix 3 Sheringham Vision, Objectives and Site Specific Proposals
and interestingly they suggest that retail development should be on the site of the sorting office, garage and library in the centre of town or on the Station Road car park. No mention of Cromer Road for development! They also state that by 2021 they expect another 300+ houses to be built in Sheringham. This is hardly enough to justify a Tesco designed to support 30,000 customers.
In another section Appendix 10 location of retail and Commercial leisure development
they state that retail development over 750 sqm should only take place in Cromer, Fakenham and North Walsham. It seems to me that one part of the council planning department is at odds with another. If Tesco obtains planning permission then the LDF might just as well be chucked out of the window!
