Great Yarmouth Borough Council is holding its final public exhibition event on Friday, September 21 in Hemsby as part of the initial public consultation to shape a key planning document to help guide and enable sustainable growth, development, jobs and investment until 2030 and beyond.

The council’s draft Local Plan Part Two includes provisional policies for deciding planning applications, suggested allocations of land for development, and also a proposed reduction in the overall housing target. The final public exhibition is taking place at Hemsby Sports & Social Club, Waters Lane, from 1pm to 7pm.

Exhibition events have already been held at Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Ormesby and Belton.

Those wishing to comment as part of the consultation can do it online at or by completing a Local Plan comments form. All comments must be received before midnight on Sunday, September 30.

Comments forms are available from the Town Hall and all public libraries in the borough.
