Residents of the north Norfolk villages of Corpusty and Saxthorpe are being asked if they want to play more of a role in the development of their neighbourhoods.

The parish council there is holding a referendum on March 7 to see if residents back a neighbourhood plan for the area, which the council has developed over the past five years.

The referendum will ask people if they agree that North Norfolk District Council should use the neighbourhood plan to help decide planning applications in the area.

The plan allows for up to 50 houses to be built within the new settlement boundary to help ensure the school, pub and local businesses, while preserving the villages’ character and open spaces.

More information about the plan, which was mainly authored by parish councillors Imogen Waterson and Tony Barnett, is online at
