CPRE Norfolk is opposed to the proposed 'Food Hub' at Easton and has submitted a 12-page objection outlining our reasons.
Dr. Shepherd has also written a comprehensive appraisal of the proposal for the May edition of Norfolk Voice.
Amazingly, there is currently no officially designated Green Belt around Norwich to help protect our green spaces and open countryside from excessive, inappropriate and unnecessary development. There are currently hundreds of planning applications to build thousands of houses on green field sites around the periphery of one of England’s most important historic cities. We all benefit from the rural open character of the hinterland around this fine City and its loss will be a tragedy for us all. That’s why CPRE Norfolk feels strongly that we must show Government how important it is to us and why it needs better protection.
As part of a campaign to promote practical solutions to climate change, CPRE Norfolk has been researching examples of local buildings that use renewable energy and low-impact construction techniques. A great variety of buildings have been discovered - from barns to water mills, cottages to smallholdings, studios to sheds, environment centres to ordinary council houses - and each has something remarkable to offer.
