The next chapter in the saga of Anglia Square begins on Thursday but do you support the latest plans to redevelop the area?

Norwich City Council's planning committee has been recommended to approve the 1,100-home plans by planning officers before their meeting at City Hall.

The £280m proposal for the run-down site would also see developer Weston Homes construct 8,000sqm of commercial space, a community hub, and 450 car parking spaces.

However, plans to rebuild the dilapidated area have been rumbling on since 2001, with various proposals coming and going.

The breakthrough looked to have arrived in 2018 when the city council approved plans but opposition to a 20-storey tower block eventually saw the government intervene.

Those "excessive" plans have since been scaled back so that no building would exceed eight storeys and 150 homes, 3,000sqm of commercial space, a cinema, a multi-storey car park and a hotel have been dropped.

Of the 72 letters written to the planning committee ahead of the meeting, 46 were in objection, 15 were in support and 11 were neutral.

Objections have come from Churches Conservation Trust, the Norfolk Gardens Trust, Historic England, Norwich Cathedral and the Norfolk Historic Building Trust. 

Concerns have also been raised about whether Weston Homes will pay the expected £7,670,421 in community infrastructure levy (CIL) funding.
