A neighbourhood plan will give our community direct power to create a shared vision for future development in Yaxham

Since 1987 there have been abour 150 planning applications in Yaxham for various numbers of dwellings. In 2001 there were 290 existing households, in 2011 340 households completed the Census. 

Over the next twenty years of the Breckland Local Plan, around 100 additional dwellings are likely to be proposed in our village.

The Community Led Plan of 2013

“Your Yaxham” has brought our village:

  • The Community Car Scheme
  • The Community Bulk Oil Buying Scheme
  • A speed awareness sign
  • The 20 mph signs near the school which will soon be in place
  • The Table Tennis Club and equipment

All thanks to the whole of our community getting together and giving their views.

The Neighbourhood Plan is the next stage; the opportunity to unite our views so that together we can tailor future development to fit within our village.
