A project which will transform North Walsham and see its population boom with 1,800 new homes, North Walsham West would see the introduction of a new link road as part of the development. 

The North Walsham West Link Road will link Norwich Road to Cromer Road and the Laundry Loke industrial estate via Bradfield Road.

Along with the road there are also plans to introduce a new school along with green spaces.
