Consultation on a Proposed Development Brief (Stalham)
The North Norfolk Site Allocations Development Plan Document, adopted in 2011, approved an area of Stalham to be allocated for a comprehensive mixed use development. The adopted Plan requires that a Development Brief is prepared for the site before development can proceed. The purposes of the brief are to:
- Agree an overall vision for the comprehensive mixed-use development of the site
- Define the broad principles of access, movement, mix of uses, layout, built form, density of development, conceptual appearance, landscape and phasing
- Provide guidance for the preparation and determination of future planning applications for development in accordance with adopted policies
This brief has now been prepared and is available for a period of public consultation: Draft Development Brief, Land Adjacent to Church Farm, Ingham Road, Stalham.
A public drop-in session is taking place at Stalham Baptist Church, High Street, Stalham on Thursday 12 July from 3 - 7pm. This is a good opportunity to discuss the contents of the Development Brief with members of the Major Developments Team. If you are unable to attend the event you can still see a static exhibition of the proposals at Stalham Library throughout the consultation period.
