Stop Norwich Urbanisation hand over petition to Keith Simpson
This development and the road infrastructure proposed would particularly affect the villages of Rackheath, Salhouse, Thorpe End and Little and Great Plumstead and it was the residents of these villages who were particularly keen to sign the petition to get their objections recorded and brought to the attention of the government and the wider public.
It is important that local residents get their views known as Broadland District Council have resolutely chosen to ignore the objections of the local community. We hope Keith Simpson will now speak on behalf of the community and make our objections known to ministers. Surely this is what the Big Society is all about and the government now has a chance to prove that they are listening to what local people say and to act accordingly. Otherwise they will be no better than Broadland District Council and the Greater Norwich Development Partnership who merely pay lip service to consultation when in reality they just plough ahead with what they want to do.
