Weather radar in Old Buckenham

Planning application now submitted

The Met Office have now completed their remaining assessments and surveys relating to the proposed plan to erect a weather radar at Old Buckenham and have submitted a planning application to Breckland District Council. The application reference number is 3PL/2019/1555/F and the submission and documentation can be viewed on the Breckland District Council website. All assessments and surveys are available to the public as part of the planning application documentation.
The concerns and feedback raised at the public consultation meeting, by the Parish Council, Old Buckenham Airfield and people living close to the proposed site were all essential to the framing of the assessments and amending the proposed plan accordingly.
The Met Office say they are confident that the extensive assessment period has been used to fully investigate the potential impacts of these plans on the parish of Old Buckenham and the surrounding parishes of New Buckenham and Carleton Rode and that they have addressed the majority of concerns. These extensive studies have investigated the potential impacts of the plan and will be made available with the planning application.
