Public consultation begins today (Friday) on a masterplan which will act as a guide for the proposed development of up to 4,000 new homes over the next 18 years in the West Winch area.

Views are being sought on the South East King’s Lynn Strategic Growth Area Framework Masterplan for the West Winch Growth Area.

It illustrates how the development could be built, showing broad locations for public open space, cycle paths and walkways, school provision, health centre, transport links and a housing access road.

Public consultation will be open for six weeks, closing on September 15. Drop-in sessions have been organised for Wednesday, August 10 and Monday, September 5 at West Winch Village Hall from 1pm to 7.30pm on both days, with opportunities to review the  masterplan, talk to the officers and submit comments.
