People across north Norfolk are about to be asked for their views on a planning blueprint earmarking housing, business and leisure land for the next 15 years.

And the district council has assured that views will be listened to, as the current plans have already been adjusted to reflect public opinion.

The latest plans affecting all the area's main towns and villages will go out to public consultation from June 15 to July 31.

People can view the plans on www.northnorfolk.org/ldf and comment via email or by calling 01263 516318.

HIGHLIGHTSCromer:

Cabbell Park football ground set aside for a possible new primary school to serve the extra homes.

Fakenham:

800 homes mainly in a large area between the town and bypass because many of the town's workers commute in from elsewhere.

Possible retail redevelopment in the White Horse Street area, with retention of the market and parking.

Hoveton

120 homes next to the surgery with a new roundabout/road improve-ments.

Housing plans off Edinburgh Road and Cley road dropped in favour of land for 200 houses at east end of bypass, which triggers redevelopment of Gresham's school.

180 homes on four sites off Holway Road and around Morley Hill, with improved access for leisure.

Complex of small shops on the Central Garage site, where access is too difficult for a supermarket.
