Have your say on plans for the River Wensum

Local people are being encouraged to have their say on plans for the River Wensum.
Enhancing the River Wensum has been at the heart of a project to develop a strategy aimed at breathing new life into the river corridor.
The draft strategy will be published on Wednesday, July 26, and its publication will be combined with the start of a public consultation.
The launch will also include an open house event at Blackfriars Hall, featuring display boards illustrating main sections of the draft strategy and Norwich City Council would like to get views from local people along with offering the chance to speak to some of the partners involved in the project.
Mike Stonard, cabinet member for sustainable and inclusive growth, said: “The River Wensum is such an important feature of Norwich which needs to be championed along with raising awareness about all the fantastic benefits it can bring to our vibrant city.
“The draft strategy reflects various aspirations and sets out possible ways to revitalise the river corridor with improved access and a high quality environment so we very much want to hear people’s views on it.
“Such improvements have the potential to contribute to the city’s regeneration by attracting private sector investment as well as making it an even better place to live, work and spend leisure time.”
The draft strategy and questionnaire will be available on the council’s website from Wednesday at www.norwich.gov.uk/riverwensum
The consultation will run from July 26 to September 15.
