A village neighbourhood plan is one step closer to being adopted after it was given the go ahead to proceed to a referendum.
Yaxham Neighbourhood Plan - which will help Breckland Council to decide planning applications in a designated area of the village, near Dereham, - was approved by district councillors at a cabinet meeting.
Maggie Oechsle, chairman of the neighbourhood plan working group, said the creation of the plan was a 'substantial task'.
She said: 'There have been times when we really thought that this day would never come.'
She added that since work began on the plan 18 months ago there has been a 'positive' attitude from residents.

Copies of the neighbourhood plan are available at Yaxham Primary School and St Peter's Church.
