Breckland Council are producing an Area Action Plan to guide development in Attleborough and Snetterton Heath over the next 15 years and need the help of residents and communities in and around the town. The ‘Issues and Options’ consultation is a chance to have a say early on in the process of producing the Area Action Plan.
The area around Attleborough and Snetterton Heath is set to change over the coming years with potential plans for:
- at least 4,000 new homes within the Attleborough area by 2026 to the south of the town;
- the necessary supporting infrastructure;
- 1,500 to 2,000 net additional jobs in Attleborough by 2021 and the release some 10 hectares of land for employment;
- a new road from the A11 to the B1077 Bunns Bank to help ease congestion;
- and 20 hectares of new employment land at Snetterton Heath.
There will be an interactive copy of the draft Area Action Plan document on the Breckland website http://consult.breckland.gov.uk with over 60 questions on a range of topics and issues on the planned growth. A summary questionnaire will also be on-line focussing on the main questions on possible areas for development. Your comments can be sent on-line.
Breckland Council has also organised a drop-in session for the rural parishes around Attleborough at Old Buckenham Village Hall on Saturday 20 November between 10am and 12.30pm. Officers will be on hand to answer questions, there will be display material and summary questionnaires will be available.
