North Norfolk District Council is encouraging residents and organisations to attend a public meeting regarding the future provision of playing pitches across the district.

The meeting is part of a project that will provide recommendations for improvements to existing facilities or additional sports pitches required to meet the demand over the next decade or so.

Stakeholders are already being contacted directly by consultants, and site visits are taking place, but the public meeting is designed to encourage input from the wider community.

The meeting will give attendees the chance to see and comment on the findings of the project so far. Sports covered include football, rugby, hockey, tennis, bowls, cricket, athletics, running and golf.

The resulting strategy will form part of the Local Plan. The purpose of the Local Plan is to provide clear detail on where new homes, jobs and infrastructure will be created in order to meet housing, employment and other needs of the area, while protecting and enhancing North Norfolk’s unique natural and built environment.

Cllr Sarah Butikofer, Leader of North Norfolk District Council, said: “I’d very much encourage people to attend this meeting. Their views will help us draw up this important strategy, which is designed to provide even better facilities over the next 10 years.”

The public meeting will be on May 22 (7pm) at the council’s HQ in Holt Road, Cromer.
