Property advisors Savills and Ingleton Wood, working for North Norfolk District Council, will be holding a public consultation from 1pm today, Thursday 8th December, to seek views on potential plans to develop apartments and commercial ground floor use at the former hotel site.

The exhibition is being held at Oddfellows Hall today, Thursday 8 December, between 1pm and 4pm and from 5pm to 7pm to talk through the potential plans for the site and the adjacent pay and display car park.

People are invited to attend the open event to review the proposals, meet the project team and give their comments.

If you’re unable to attend the open event and would like more details please contact Nicol Perryman at Ingleton Wood LLP on or call 01603 666847.

North Norfolk District Council has been following its Local Planning Enforcement Plan to ensure that the condition of the site is improved and that it stops being a blight on the local community and economy.

There has been historical delay with this site being redeveloped by its owner, which led to the Council resolving to make a Compulsory Purchase Order, to enable the Council to bring the site back into use for the economic and social well-being of the area and the community.

The owner of the site is now in the process of submitting its own proposals for redevelopment, and the Council remains supportive of this site being developed by its owner, subject to appropriate planning permission.

Nevertheless, given the significant delay already suffered by the local community, the Council intends to put itself in a position where it can make a Compulsory Purchase Order immediately, if this becomes necessary.

To enable this, the Council seeks planning permission for its own Scheme to demonstrate that its plans are deliverable, thereby justifying the making of a Compulsory Purchase Order.
