South Norfolk District Council have issued their draft proposals for new housing in our area as part of the Great Norwich Local Plan. There are two sites indicated in Bressingham as suitable for development plus one other site short-listed as possible if needed. These are shown on the plan below.
This is currently a consultation policy so is open to change. We have until the 2nd August to submit a response. If you have any comments and wish to make them direct to South Norfolk this must be made via the questionnaire on the South Norfolk website. The form can be found by going to:www.southnorfolkandbroadland.gov.uk/emerging-local-plan/south-norfolk-village-clusters-housing-allocations-plan and following the links.
The Parish Council will be making formal representation to the District council and would welcome opinions from residents. Please forward your comments by email to the Parish Clerk (email@example.com) so we can collate them into our response.

The GNLP consists of two main elements:
- The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) Strategy which is the planning strategy for growth in Greater Norwich from 2018 to 2038 together with supporting thematic policies.
- GNLP Sites document which contains the policies for sites we propose to allocate for development to help deliver the GNLP.
There are also supporting and evidence base documents available for inspection including the Sustainability Appraisal, the Habitats Regulations Assessment, the Equalities Impact Assessment.
Note to Bressingham and Fersfield:
A separate allocation plan is being developed by South Norfolk Council for the village cluster sites in South Norfolk which will come forward in due course.
This does not exclude you from making representations on the plan as described.
