How to get involved

To shape these plans, the team will be holding engagement sessions with key stakeholders across the district, public online workshops, and activities in each town to invite residents to highlight the best of their town and areas of focus. We Made That, who will be leading the sessions, have a strong track record of public engagement activities and are committed to ensuring community voices are heard throughout these processes.

The five market towns will be guided through structured engagement plans. The team will be focusing on developing a plan for Dereham over the next few months, with work to follow for the remaining four market towns. Each engagement period for each town will last for around six weeks giving residents, community members and other stakeholders the chance to feed into and comment on the work being undertaken.

Local partners are being written to by Breckland Council to encourage them to help shape the plans, while residents are encouraged to look out for invitations to share their views which will be advertised in each town via the council's social media accounts and on this website.

Engagement activities that specifically relate to each town will be posted on the individual town pages on this website. This will include specific details of how you can join in with engagement activities, and what you need to do to sign up for the various events taking place. There will be multiple points where the wider public can share ideas, thoughts, comments and reflections:

  • 'Meet the Team' virtual session.
  • Online surveys and feedback opportunities.
  • Virtual workshop events on opportunities and areas for improvement.
  • Virtual workshop to feedback on emerging ideas.
