The Project and Watton

Future Breckland: Thriving People & Places is intended to provide a robust evidence base and compelling shared vision for the future of the district, set in the context of significant projects we can deliver in each of our towns. Done right, this work will put Breckland's towns in pole-position to leverage new external funding whilst also using our shared resources better to deliver transformational change across the district.

It is really important that residents, community members and other stakeholders have the chance to take part and contribute to the work being undertaken, and there will be multiple opportunities to do so.

Engagement activities for Watton will begin on the 8 September, with the first event, a 'Meet the Team' session with consultants Hatch and We Made That.

Planned Watton Engagement events

Engagement will initially be online due to COVID restrictions. Where individuals are not able to engage digitally, we will ensure paper forms are available. Key planned activity includes:

  • Future Watton: Your Priorities Workshop
