The Norfolk Planning Authorities are consulting on a draft Norfolk Strategic Framework document. This is prepared jointly by Breckland Council, Broadland District Council, Broads Authority, Great Yarmouth Borough Council, Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, North Norfolk District Council, Norwich City Council, Norfolk County Council and South Norfolk Council.

The document explains the main demographic, household and employment forecasts and how these affect the future development needs of the County, outlines national planning policy requirements, and includes high level visions relating to the economy, climate change, housing, quality of life and the environment.

The public consultation runs until Friday 22nd Sept 2017.  Comments on any aspect of the document but do make it clear which section/paragraph number(s) your comments relate to. A response form is available on their web site at https://norfolk.citizenspace.com/consultation/norfolk-strategic-framework . This is their preferred response method. Alternatively you can e-mail comments to nsf@norfolk.gov.uk

This Parish falls within the Consultation Zone. This Zone aligns with area in which they are surveying for installation sites for their power lines and associated equipment. See the newsletter for the consultation events in October/November and for contact details.



The Norfolk Association of Local Councils (NALC) have written saying “People are living longer, our population is getting older and the type of care that people need is changing. Our GPs, hospitals and social care services therefore need to change too. We want to talk with you about the big challenges our health and social care services face, because any changes to services will impact on the residents living in your town or parish. It’s important that you share your views with us now because Norfolk and Waveney’s health and social care services have to create a plan for tackling these challenges, which will eventually result in changes to services.”

Presumably Norfolk & Waveney have a good idea of what the issues are, but are inviting views on priorities, scope, strategies & tactics. Hence the meeting being organised by NALC for town and parish councils on 21st September. We hope to send a representative.

Do you, as a Wreningham resident, have a view which you want to share for this meeting? If so, please e-mail it to the Clerk (clerkwpc@gmail.com) for her to collate parish views for the parish representative. Or, you may wish to contact NALC’s County Officer, Helen Ollett-Nash at countyofficer@norfolkalc.gov.uk or on 01603 638495.



The planning application from FW Properties for the development in Church Road of a site for 10 houses was displayed for parishioners to view, discuss and subsequently pass their comments onto South Norfolk Council.

The Chair of the Parish Council wishes to thank all those that came to the Hall during the afternoon of 24th and the morning of 25th November. Also, thanks for the practical assistance of John Bligh and Keith Morris in erecting and taking down the display boards, and, posting the drawings and supporting documents. The Clerk, Anne Rayner, assisted and removed the material for the next Parish Council meeting which will be on 30th November at 8.00pm in the Margaret Preston Room to discuss this planning application.

 


DISPLAY OF PLANNING APPLICATION FOR CHURCH ROAD DEVELOPMENT

On 19th August at the Bird in Hand the developers, FW Partnership, held a consultation event on their design for the development of 10 houses on Church Road in advance of producing the planning application. We understand that some 75 people attended and a number of written and verbal comments were made. These are presented in the Statement of Community Involvement produced by FW Partnership.

The planning application has now been made – see  application 2015/2449 on the SNC website.

To aid parishioners when considering the development’s planning application and to help inform the comments they may wish to make to SNC, the Parish Council is arranging to display the plans and supporting material for parishioners’ inspection at the Village Hall:

  • 24th November – 12 noon to 5 pm (possibly later)
  • 25th November – 9 am to 1 pm.

I would appreciate the assistance of volunteers to help put up the display on the Tuesday morning, assist during the display period and then take it down in the afternoon of Wednesday. Please contact the Clerk (clerk.WPC@gmail.com or 01508 570700) to advise of your availability. Thank you.
