bob thompson: West Runton will unfortunately only transmit the three PSB muxes. The Digital UK postcode checker predicts that both Belmont and Tacolneston will probably be receivable at your location with variable reception. If you currently receive Mux1 from Belmont there is a good chance that you will receive Mux SDN (which carries ITV3) after switchover as it will use the frequency vacated by Mux1.
