I was delighted this week to hear that the appealed planning permission for a development on the outskirts of Dereham known as “Dumpling Green” has finally been stopped.
For too long, aggressive out of town developers have sought to bank land permissions so as to force through often inappropriate and unsustainable large-scale developments in our towns and villages elsewhere. As a result, public trust in our planning system is at an all-time low.
This all reaffirms the need for a proper strategic Dereham TownPlan, and I remain committed to supporting Dereham Town Council, along with all the other groups involved, as they look to bring one about.
For a full report on the planning officer’s decision please see attached file here.
