A public exhibition is being held today (Friday 12) to give residents the chance to have a say on major plans for the North Lynn area.
Three projects are on the cards which could see a multi-million pound new link road created from Edward Benefer Way to Lynnsport and the release of land for around 500 new homes.
The exhibition is at Lynnsport in Greenpark Avenue from 10.30am to 8pm. Representatives from the borough and county councils, Internal Drainage Board, Norfolk Wildlife Trust and BUG – the Bicycle Users Group – will be on hand.
Residents are being urged to attend and have their say on the following projects:
* The creation of a new link to ease congestion and improve air quality issues in the Gaywood clock and town centre areas.
* The construction of a pumping station on the northern part of the Lynnsport site and the installation of a rising main to improve surface water and give extra flood protection to North Lynn and the town centre.
* Residential development on land in the area.
People have until September 22 to make their views known. There is also a survey which can be completed online, along with more information about the proposals.
Alistair Beales, borough council cabinet member for regeneration, said: “These are fairly major initiatives for the North Lynn area and we are keen to get people’s views.”
A planning application has yet to be submitted, but this could be in the autumn.
The master plan and online survey can also be found online at: www.west-norfolk.gov.uk/haveyoursay
