Get ready for the LDF!

New development proposals for North Norfolk - are they going to affect you? Get ready to let NNDC know your views! Public consultation on two key elements of the Local Development Framework will commence, for 6 weeks only, at midday on 25 September 2006.Visit the LDF website for up-to-date information, draft proposals, newsletters and consultation details.

The plans include details on where and how big retail and housing developments should be. If this had been adopted last year then the Tesco plans would not have been allowed for Sheringham as the proposals stipulate that only stores below 750sqm and ones that do not damage the viability and vitality of the town centre will be permitted. If the planning committee approve the Tesco store against the LDF guidelines then they are going to look very stupid.
