13/10/21: Share your vision for the future of Watton and Swaffham

People living in Watton and Swaffham are being invited to share their views on what the future of the towns look like.

As part of Breckland Council's ongoing Future Breckland programme, two new public workshops will take place next week. The first, on 19 October, will be held at 6pm in Swaffham Town Hall, while on 20 October (6pm) residents will be able to give their views at Watton Sports Centre. 

The council's Future Breckland scheme is inviting people in each of Breckland's market towns to identify what's best about their area, what makes their town special, and what unique challenges the towns are facing which need to be addressed.

As a result of the public feedback, plans for each of Breckland's towns will be drawn up with a list of priorities and suggestions which address the challenges raised by local people.
The Future Breckland project has already completed a vision for Dereham, whilst Thetford and Attleborough consultations will take place in the new year.

Cllr Paul Claussen, Breckland Council's Executive Member for Economic Development and Growth said: "We want these plans to be shaped by the people who live and work in our towns, so the towns' futures are driven by local people. If you have ideas to share, I urge you to come forward and get involved."

Residents, local groups and businesses who would like to share their thoughts and visions about Watton or Swaffham should book to attend the free workshop via the council's website: www.breckland.gov.uk/Future-Breckland
