Poringland Parish Council has announced a date for the first public involvement event concerning the development of a neighbourhood plan.

The village in south Norfolk has grown considerably over the past 20 years and it is hoped the establishment of a neighbourhood plan will help shape future developments in the area.

John Henson, councillor, said: 'The time is right for the village to come together and define a shared vision for this area. We are very aware of a growing sense of unease about the level of developments we are seeing here, and the strain it puts on our local infrastructure. This is a chance to identify what makes this area an attractive place to live and see how we can preserve and build on that.'

People living in the area and neighbouring parishes are invited to the first event which will take place from 2pm-8pm at Poringland's Community Centre on Monday December 4.
