Two Birds - One Stone

Fingers crossed, but it looks as though two local birds are going to be killed with just one stone at an important meeting in Long Stratton next week.

The main Planning Committee of South Norfolk Council is due to meet next Wednesday, 3rd February, and on the agenda is Application No. 2009/1711 — Denton’s affordable housing scheme. Details on the Council’s Website. This was submitted, by Saffron Housing, two months ago but has been held up by an objection from County Highways. They were concerned about the speed of traffic passing the site on Norwich Road.

To get round this objection Saffron have now agreed to meet the costs of a 30 MPH speed limit and, as a result, the application is recommended for approval.

So, all being well, Denton will be getting both six new affordable homes AND a speed limit at the same time.

Anybody interested in the new accommodation must be on the Council’s Housing Register. Further information is on our Features page.
