South Norfolk Council (SNC) is currently consulting on the next stage of the process involved in deciding on possible future development centred around the communities in the district that have primary schools and other amenities, which it has called the Village Clusters Housing Allocations Plan, or VCHAP.

The current consultation lasts until 5pm on Monday, 6th March and is specifically intended to look at whether the VCHAP as a whole is legally and procedurally compliant and whether the plan is ‘Sound’, in accordance with National Planning Policy – this is quite a technical issue, and relates primarily to the process that has been followed, rather than anything to do with the sites themselves

Further information about the consultation can be found on the Agendas page of the website.

Kirby Cane & Ellingham Parish Council planning committee is meeting to discuss this subject on Monday, 20th February at 7pm in Kirby Cane Memorial Hall. If you would like any information about this meeting, please call the parish clerk, Jane Love, on 01508 518375, or submit questions via email to
