Banner headlines in the Eastern Daily Press but did anyone else notice?
There seems to have been little or no national interest in the news that 37,00 new homes are planned for Norfolk - indeed the EDP's super banner was actually for their series of articles on the Great Yarmouth's outer harbour debacle. Is this just another instance of Norfolk people sticking their heads in the sand and saying "it won't happen"? This is how we got into such as mess and the reason why we were such an easy target.
A town the size of Thetford with homes and businesses is proposed for N E Norwich and no-one murmers! Norwich is set to grow with its urban sprawl making it about the same size as Nottingham. The New Economics Foundation complains about homogenized high streets - it is not just high streets it is whole towns and cities together with their suburbs that are losing their individuality and character. People living in rural communities will wake up in years to come to find they have become town dwellers - part of Norwich - well, how did that happen?!!
Surely no-one wants this happen to Norwich and the surrounding countryside....or do they?
