Have your say on housing in Hunstanton




Hunstanton residents and interested parties are being urged to attend a consultation event in order to have their say on housing plans in the town.

A drop-in event will take place between 3pm and 7pm on Thursday, February 27 at Hunstanton Town Hall.

The event will give people the chance to find out more about about the proposals for development on Beach Terrace Road end of the Southend Road car park to provide 32 one-, two, and three-bed flats.

This development is detailed in Phase 1 of the Southern Seafront Masterplan and forms part of the long-term strategic plan for the area.

Representatives from the West Norfolk Council, The Design Partnership (Ely) Ltd and the council's planning consultant will be on hand to discuss the proposals.

The consultation will be open until Sunday, March 8. Anyone unable to attend the consultation event can provide feedback online from February 27 onwards by visiting west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay.

A separate consultation will take place earlier in the day on the 27th for invited members of the town council, Coastal Communities Team and Civic Society.

West Norfolk councillor Peter Gidney, cabinet member for project delivery, said: "This development not only provides much needed housing, but also adds to our efforts to encourage town centre living which is known to improve a town's economy.

"We want to encourage year-round activity in Hunstanton and this supports that ambition.

"I would urge people to come along and have their say on the proposals, so that their feedback can be considered ahead of a planning application being submitted."

A planning application will be submitted this spring after the feedback has been considered.

Further opportunities to provide feedback will be available through the normal planning process.
