Major blow to Norfolk success story


Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council have turned down a request to build a campus on the site of the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB). The CITB are the largest training provider for the Construction Industry in the UK and it is a real success story. Read more about it HERE.

To my mind, it is a shame that Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council (KLWNBC) have turned down the application as this would have cemented (no pun intended) the position of the CITB nationally, just at a time when the newspapers are full of stories about us having to impoirt construction workers from Eastern Europe. The CITB provides lots of employment in West Norfolk, and also in my council ward in Fakenham.


I hope that KLWNBC will look at this again more favourably if a revised application is sent in.

It is rather tyopical of the "anti enterprise" culture the Conservatives have in Norfolk. They oppose anything that does not leave Norfolk preserved in a semi rural state suitable only for the wealthy and retired.
