Residents will get their chance to say where new housing and employment developments should go in south Norfolk when a public consultation starts.

Eighteen exhibitions have been organised, starting on September 4 and ending October 26, to help shape the future growth of the district up until 2026.

The consultation will form a blueprint for housing and employment growth in south Norfolk.

Derek Blake, cabinet member for planning, housing and the built environment, said: 'Our consultation comes as the government is urging councils to take more notice of what local people want and say. We have always believed in that. But we need the community to meet us half way, come to our exhibitions, go to our website and join the great debate.'
