"I have long argued that the giving of offence, and even hate speech, should be a moral matter but not a matter for the criminal law. That is as true on the football pitch as on the streets. We should always challenge racism. We should also always challenge attacks on liberties in the guise of faux antiracism." Kenan Malik

Norwich People Urged To Have Their Say On Future Developments

People were today reminded they can take part in a consultation which could transform how Norwich looks in the future.

In October, Norwich City Council unveiled its draft site allocations plan, which identified 170 potential sites to be developed around the city.

The draft consultation document has been drawn up after the city council called on developers’ agents and community groups to come up with ideas of how sites in the city could be used for development.

Among the proposals are for the former Big W at Riverside to be turned into a concert hall or sports centre, 20 of the city’s car parks to be used for housing and for the Bethel Street fire station to be used for shops, flats and offices.

A string of staffed exhibitions will also be held next month, on the following dates:

January 11 from 10am to 2pm at Norwich Central Baptist Church in Duke Street

January 18 from 5pm to 7pm at the Walter Roy Theatre at the Hewett School in Cecil Road

January 21 from 5pm to 7pm at the Norman Centre in Bignold Road

January 28 from 5pm to 7pm at City Academy Norwich in Earlham Road

Following the initial round of consultation, there will be a second round based on shortlisted sites and another chance for the public to comment on the proposed document before the formal adoption of the document
