The English Indices of Deprivation 2010 were published yesterday and the map on page 4 of that document shows the extent of deprivation around the country.
If GNDP constituent councillors were as altruistic as they sound at some meetings then perhaps they will hand over the money allocated to them for growth, to areas in Norfolk who are in far greater need than themselves.
The foreward to the Joint Core Strategy sees the leaders of the GNDP constituent councils stating "We do not want to be the generation of political leaders that allowed growth to take its own course. The effort we have made in drawing up this strategy means that our area can continue to provide homes and opportunities for local people and their families, and that growth will happen in a sustainable way that complements the existing local character." However, they might well be seen as the generation of leaders whose hunger for growth resulted in the destruction of not only Norfolk countryside but also the towns and villages outside their own boundaries.
