Residents of three Breckland communities are being reminded consultations are still ongoing and their views are being sought.

Feedback is being requested by Breckland Council about changes requested by parish councils.

Thetford Town Council wants to extend its parish boundary to include the new Sustainable Urban Extension area – which will include 5,000 houses.

Carbrooke has asked to increase the size of its council from seven to nine members following a substantial population growth.

And Great Ellingham Parish Council wants to extend their southern boundary to the A11.

Consultations for all three will close on March 16.

After the consultations close the district council will consider the feedback received and will draw up draft proposals which will go to further consultation.
