Sheringham Tesco Inquiry Starts

The Public Inquiry into Tesco's application to build a store in Sheringham begins at the North Norfolk District Council offices in Cromer at 10am on Tuesday 1 July. The inquiry, chaired by a Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State, is expected to last for three weeks.
The inquiry will take place in the Council Chamber, and seats for members of the public wishing to observe or speak during the proceedings will be limited by the fire regulations that apply to the room. Therefore anyone hoping to speak is particularly advised to arrive in good time before the start of the hearing. It should also be noted that filming or recording of the proceedings will not be allowed by the Inspector.
A second inquiry, concerning proposed residential development for Norfolk Homes at Cromer Road, North Walsham, is also being held on 1 July. Since car parking at the Council offices is limited it will be available on a strictly first come, first served basis. Parking is available nearby and elsewhere in the town of Cromer.
As the Council offices will be very busy before 10am on 1 July, anyone not concerned with the planning inquiries is advised that if they can they should delay their visit until later in the day.
