Just a few weeks left to suggest sites to protect or to develop across Great Yarmouth
Time is running out for people across Great Yarmouth to put forward sites for development or for protection as part of the borough's masterplan up to 2041.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is starting work on preparing a new Local Plan, an important document that will set out the amount of new development needed to ensure housing and commercial development needs are met, including where it should be and how it should be delivered.
It will also set out the overall planning policies that will be used in determining future planning applications, so that new development is delivered in a sustainable way.
One of the first parts of producing the plan is to map out where development should go - and where it shouldn't, so important green spaces are protected into the future.
Individuals, landowners, developers, parish councils and others now have just three weeks to suggest sites that may be suitable for development or that they think should be designated as protected 'local green spaces'.
Sites can be submitted to the Council using an interactive form and map on the Council's website and should be submitted by 11.59pm on the 8 July 2022.
All sites submitted will be subject to further public consultation as the plan is developed over the next few years, with the final document likely to come into force from 2025.
