Tesco will be at the Inquiry into the North Norfolk Local Development Framework(LDF) next week. They are attempting to get the clasification of Sheringham and Stalham changed so that they are no longer classified as secondary towns for development. In particular they want the document to state that - “1,500 sqm of net sales convenience goods floorspace will be accommodated on an appropriate site within the town”.
If this happens then Tesco will be strengthened in any future appeal over the current refusal for their store. We must hope that the Council defend the LDF with the same fortitude shown by the councillors last week.
