Local Development Order - Food Hub
As a parish Council we have continued to raise concerns over the current plans and the proposed routing of HGV traffic though part of the village.
Broadland District have not been very open to providing information on what is happening , they attempted to put though a planning application number 20180471 without providing an opportunity for consultation.
We have now created a dedicated page as much detail as we can so that local residents can stay informed as to what is happening.
Persimmon Homes application 2020/0962
The Parish Council has been working very hard in response to this application .
We have appointed Abzag Ltd to support us with this application.
At present we are continuing to work though a draft response that will go before the Parish Council at the next meeting for approval.
We understand residents are concerned about this development and we need residents to make South Norfolk planners aware of these concerns before the 11th July.

Speak up if you suspect domestic violence or abuse
If you suspect that someone you know is being abused, speak up! If you’re hesitating—telling yourself that it’s none of your business, you might be wrong, or that the person might not want to talk about it—keep in mind that expressing your concern will let the person know that you care and may even save their life.
Talk to the person in private and let them know that you’re concerned. Point out the signs you’ve noticed that worry you. Tell the person that you’re there for them, whenever they feel ready to talk. Reassure them that you’ll keep whatever is said between the two of you, and let them know that you’ll help in any way you can.
Remember, abusers are very good at controlling and manipulating their victims. People who have been emotionally or physically abused are often depressed, drained, scared, ashamed, and confused. They need help getting out of the situation, yet their partner has often isolated them from their family and friends. By picking up on the warning signs and offering support, you can help them escape an abusive situation and begin healing.
