We are seeking your views on the Draft Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plans for Glaven Valley, which provide up-to-date guidance for the care and protection of the Conservation Areas.

This consultation closed at 11:59pm on 31 March 2023.

What happens next?

Following the community consultation and review of all representations received, the Appraisals and Management Proposals will be amended as required and reconsidered by the District Council’s Planning Policy and Built Heritage Working Party before formal adoption by Cabinet. The document will then become a material consideration in the North Norfolk District Council planning process.


There were exhibitions displaying proposals at two locations - St Nicholas Church in Blakeney and St Lawrence Parish Church in Hunworth, with hard copies of the draft appraisal available at Holt Library and the Council Offices in Cromer.

Open meetings 

A public meeting was held in Holt on Wednesday, 30 November, from 5.30pm to 7pm. Council representatives explained the process and answered questions.

An additional two public meetings were held in Holt and Blakeney on Thursday 9 March, where officers explained the process and answer any questions.
