Walpole Cross Keys is the third parish in west Norfolk to submit a proposed neighbourhood development plan to the borough council.

This plan is intended to shape development in the parish, and guide decisions on planning applications.

The plan has been prepared independently by the parish council, with the borough council providing advice and assistance.

The proposed plan will now go through a process which includes independent examination to see if it complies with national requirements, and a local referendum to see if it is supported by the majority of local residents.

If successful this plan will become part of the official ‘development plan’, alongside the borough’s Local Plan.

There is now an eight-week consultation during which anyone may make comments on the plan to help inform the decisions on it.

The usual six-week consultation period has been extended to account for Christmas closures.
