PROPOSALS for two new gipsy and traveller sites in south Norfolk are set to be approved by councillors next week.
A special meeting of South Norfolk Council will take place on Monday to clear the latest hurdle to create new permanent pitches in the district.
If approved by full council, the plans for sites on the edge of Wymondham and Earsham, near Bungay, will be sent to the planning inspectorate for further public examination in late spring.
Two potential gipsy and traveller locations off Stanfield Road, Wymondham, and Old Harleston Road, Earsham, were selected following two public consultation exercises last year, which attracted more than 5,000 representations.

The plans, which could create 16 permanent pitches in south Norfolk by 2011, come after three years of deliberations and the examination of more than 80 potential sites.
John Fuller, South Norfolk Council leader, said: “The ultimate prize is the reassurance of well managed, small, permanent sites, and a chance at last to tackle the issue of unauthorised encampments,” he said.
