									Will future development in North Norfolk affect you?
North Norfolk District Council has been preparing two new plans to guide future development in North
Norfolk and you may recall that last Autumn we consulted on the „Preferred Options‟ Core Strategy and
Site Specific Proposals. After considering the comments made we have now produced the „Submission‟
Core Strategy which, on submission to the Secretary of State, will be subject to another six week period
of public consultation and then an independent examination.

        From midday 18 June to midday 30 July the Independent Inspector will be seeking
                      your views on the ‘Submission’ Core Strategy.

What the Core Strategy says….
The Core Strategy outlines the vision, objectives and policies that will influence where, when and how
development takes place in North Norfolk. It does not identify specific development sites – these
will be identified in the second plan known as the “Site Specific Proposals” which will be prepared for
submission in 2008. The Core Strategy identifies that;

   Most new housing will take place in the towns and larger villages, either through small „infill‟
    development in the existing built-up areas or on new “greenfield” sites on the edge of settlements.

   Cromer, Fakenham, Holt, and North Walsham will have the largest amount of housing, with
    smaller amounts in Hoveton, Sheringham, Stalham and Wells-next-the-Sea.

   There will be very small housing allocations in Aldborough, Bacton, Blakeney, Briston & Melton
    Constable, Catfield, Corpusty & Saxthorpe, Happisburgh, Horning, Little Snoring, Little
    Walsingham, Ludham, Mundesley, Overstrand, Roughton, Southrepps and Weybourne.

   In all other villages and the countryside new development will be limited, (including no more
    „infill‟ of housing in many small villages in the distict), but affordable housing schemes, with priority
    for people from the immediate area will be encouraged along with certain types of development for
    employment and community uses.

As well as identifying where new development will and will not be allowed, the plan provides a package
of development control policies that will influence decisions on individual planning applications.
