Fresh consultation on South Norfolk homes plans
A consultation exercise will be launched next month where residents will get the opportunity to shape the delivery of thousands of new homes in South Norfolk.
A three month-long public consultation will begin on August 29 over proposals for around 10,000 homes in the district over the next 15 years.
A host of drop-in sessions will take place where feedback will shape village and town boundaries in the South Norfolk Council area.
Residents will also get a chance to have their say on area action plans for Wymondham and Long Stratton, which are set to receive 2,200 and 1,800 new homes respectively. The proposals are seen as the only way of funding a long-awaited bypass in Long Stratton.
South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon and Mid Norfolk MP George Freeman will be chairing public meetings in Long Stratton and Wymondham.

Yvonne Bendle, cabinet member for strategic planning and localism at South Norfolk Council, said: 'You can help shape and reshape each and every one of your neighbourhoods and streets from towns like Wymondham to our smallest villages and parishes including where new homes, jobs and development boundaries will go for the next 15 years.'
