The Dereham phase of a Breckland council project to plan for the future of the district’s five market towns continues with another public event to take place on 17 June.

Future Breckland: Thriving People & Places is a large-scale project that will result in individually focussed plans for Dereham, Thetford, Attleborough, Watton, and Swaffham. The plans will identify what’s needed to tackle each towns’ challenges while making the most of their strengths. 

The gathering of Dereham people's views began in May with a “Meet the Team” event, and was a chance to meet the consultant team carrying out the project. 

The next planned online event is an “Intervention Workshop” on 17 June at 6pm, with the public invited to hear about the emerging project ideas and contribute their views. Tickets are limited, and can be booked online at:

Breckland cabinet member Paul Claussen said: “We want these plans to be shaped by the people who live and work in our towns, so if you have ideas to share, please get involved.”
