A six-week consultation has started on a draft neighbourhood development plan which will help shape the future of two north Norfolk villages.
People in Corpusty and Saxthorpe have set out their vision for the next 20 years.
The communities want to increase the number of young families in the villages and improve services for an elderly population.
In a statement, they said: 'Our two villages, united by the river Bure, will move positively into the 21st century, while preserving the agricultural, historical and industrial character of the community by developing well-designed new dwellings appropriate to our significant heritage together with provision for small scale local employment opportunities.'
The document will now be considered by an independent examiner and put to public referendum. Prior to this, North Norfolk District Council is running a consultation on the draft plan until August 6. The documents can be viewed at council offices and at www.north-norfolk.gov.uk/corpustynp
