The public are to be given a say on plans setting out how a growing neighbourhood on the Norwich outskirts will develop over the next 14 years.

South Norfolk Council (SNC) has agreed to send the Trowse with Newton neighbourhood plan out for consultation.  

The neighbourhood plan, developed by the parish council, is intended to outline how the area should develop between now and 2038.  

It does not set out specific areas for houses to be built but provides 14 policies for the district to follow when determining planning applications in the village. 

SNC officials criticised the plan at a meeting in September, suggesting it was not realistic.   

At a recent meeting, Lisa Neal, cabinet member for the economy, said councillors had been concerned by the “number and nature” of issues raised by officers when the plan was brought forward previously.

“There are still a few minor issues that officers have raised, but the majority have been dealt with now,” she said.  

The cabinet unanimously agreed to send the plans out for consultation.
