North Norfolk District Council has received the ‘submission version’ of the Ryburgh Neighbourhood Development Plan and is therefore commencing a six week consultation of the draft between Monday 6 April and Monday 18 May 2020.

The consultation will be in preparation for consideration by an independent examiner and a subsequent public referendum.

Neighbourhood Plans can be used by local communities to influence the planning of the area in which they live and work. They can be used to develop a shared vision for a neighbourhood, to choose where new homes, shops, offices and other development should be built, to identify and protect important local green spaces, and to influence what new buildings should look like.

The consultation documents are available to view online as well as the response form, to be submitted to planningpolicy@north-norfolk.gov.uk or returned by post to Planning Policy Team, North Norfolk District Council, Holt Road, Cromer, NR27 9EN by Monday 18 May 2020.

A limited number of copies will be available to residents who are unable to access the documents online. The documents can be collected from Ryburgh Village Shop & Post Office, Station Road, Great Ryburgh, during normal opening hours.

In light of the current Coronavirus situation, and following the guidance from Government, the availability of documents may be subject to change. Social distancing must be observed in line with such guidance and online access is encouraged where possible.

Those who are not online can request a printed copy to be delivered by contacting Mike Rundle, Secretary of Ryburgh Neighbourhood Plan Working Group, at ryburghndp@gmail.com or by telephoning 01328 829472.

Comments are invited on the content of the draft plan and in particular may wish to address whether or not the proposed plan fulfils the ‘basic conditions’ tests that the appointed examiner will be required to undertake, more details of which can be found online or by contacting the Working Group Secretary as above. All comments received will be provided to the examiner following the close of the consultation.
