Waveney District Plan

At the May 2016 Parish Council meeting, the Council discussed what impact the new plan might have on the village. The land opposite Brick Hill Cottages has been submitted by the owners as a site for potential future development, and, as the ‘appeal for sites’ phase is still open, there might be other sites put forward.

There is no immediate cause for alarm! These district plans are put together from time to time to identify sites for new housing, businesses etc. that might be developed in the future. Their purpose is to see which ones are feasible in relation to the availability of local services, utilities, medical facilities, access etc. as well as what impact such developments might have on the existing local community.

Many sites are being put forward all over the Waveney district and a very large number will never get developed. All such sites need a commercial developer who wants to build on them and normal planning application and building regulations will apply.

Waveney is hoping to have its new plan agreed in two years time and admit they are being optimistic about getting it settled that quickly.

You can view the plans and register your comment using the below link.

There are tabs at the top to access the Parish Council information and The Wissett Web, our local newsletter, published every 2 months.

Other tabs give information on Wissett, an events page, and a gallery of local pictures.
