Planning application for change of use of agricultural land for an extension to the cemetery and playing field

The Parish Council has applied to the Broads Authority for change of use of some of the agricultural land  north of the current Pyebush  Lane cemetery and Recreation Centre playing fields, for an extension to the current cemetery and playing fields.  This process is a separate process from the current application to the Secretary of State for a Compulsory Purchase Order to obtain 1 acre of land for a smaller extension, to the cemetery only.
It would be helpful if residents who support the planning application were to write to the BA to express their support.
