GTDP Community Sub-Group

The GTDP Community Sub-Group was part of the Greater Thetford Development Partnership — an advisory body set to oversee the Thetford Sustainable Extension and other developments in the Town. Despite the GTDP having no formal powers, it is likely to have a lot of influence over the direction of the upcoming developments in Thetford. No local community groups are directly represented on the Board, and instead their input comes via a Community Sub-Group, whose chairman sat as a non-voting member of the main Board. The Sub-Group was disbanded by the GTDP Board in July 2019.

The Community Sub-Group comprised one representative from each of the three local parish and town councils (Thetford, Croxton, and Brettenham & Kilverstone), a representative from the Thetford Business Forum, and four co-opted community representatives. These representatives were selected from an open application process in February 2016.

The Community Sub-Group meetings were all open to the public. Time will be allocated for public questions at the start of each meeting, and members of the public can also contribute during the meeting at the invitation of the Chair. The agenda and papers for each meeting are usually published at least a week prior to the meeting.
