Community leaders have called for residents’ to support them when a controversial housing development is debated next week.
Outline proposals for 200 homes, a care home, housing with care facilities, community hall and other infrastructure on the edge of Heacham are to be considered by the West Norfolk Council planning committee next Monday, September 2.
A report by planning officers into the application, submitted by Townsfolk Limited and the Broadland Housing Association, is expected to be published today. No details of their recommendations to councillors have yet been released.
But Heacham parish council officials, who have been at the forefront of local opposition to the scheme, say they will be making the case against the plan at the committee meeting.
The authority says its chairman, Peter Colvin, and ward councillors Stephanie Smeaton and Colin Manning will all speak against the scheme at the meeting.
The statement adds: “This meeting is open to the public and Heacham residents are invited to attend to support the Parish Council.”
The meeting is at Lynn Town Hall from10am.
