George Freeman MP invited to chair first Wymondham Community Town Planning Meeting in the New Year

Following a meeting with South Norfolk District Council’s Senior Planning Officials this afternoon, George Freeman, MP for Mid Norfolk and founder of The Norfolk Way, a charitable organisation committed to promoting vibrant, sustainable and environmentally sensitive economic growth in rural Norfolk, has been invited to chair the first Wymondham Community Meeting.

The Wymondham Town Plan Consultation on the 20th of January will be an opportunity for people to join in the planning process and discuss the long-term needs for the town, setting out their vision for a holistic and fully integrated Wymondham town.

Speaking in advance of the consultation George Freeman said:

“I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity to chair the town meeting, and whilst as a Constituency MP I have no formal jurisdiction over planning or individual applications, I have long held a close interest in planning policy and process.

“The meeting in January will be a chance for everyone with an interest in Wymondham to express their views and take part in the formulation of a long-term town plan. In recent years planning has become something done to towns, not by them; communities should be at the heart of planning and given the opportunity to take part in their design.

“I look forward to in particular to discussing the priorities for Wymondham for the next 25 years, be they for opening access from the railway station through to its historic town centre to attract visitors by train, building the infrastructure such as schools and doctors surgeries needed to support the town, or looking at how to incorporate local design and materials into this vision.

“I encourage people to join the meeting in the New Year and share their ideas for what they want from their town.”
