Thetford

The Project and Thetford

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 Thetford will begin on the 5 February, with the first event at Thetford Market.

Have Your Say - Draft Thetford Town Delivery Plan

Engagement events have now concluded and the publication of this document for discussion marks a key step in the project.

We believe the proposed plan represents the most effective representation of all the lessons we have learned during our engagement with Thetford's residents, stakeholders and businesses.

However, as the successful delivery of this work will be very much reliant on the strength of partnership behind it, we will now take careful time to listen to feedback and input on the plans in their draft form.

The document will be publicly available for comment for six weeks and all comments can be sent through to the project team at TDPS@breckland.gov.uk
