The feedback from these events will inform the final plan, which is a way of helping communities influence the planning of an area - including where homes can be built.

The event, held at the town’s Queens Hall at 7pm, will include a question and answer session with Mr Freeman.

Councillor Jane Fountain, neighbourhood plan working group, said: “We really want all sectors of the community to come along to this and future Neighbourhood Plan events so that we can ensure that our Watton of the future meets the needs of its whole community.”
