Greater Norwich Local Plan

A consultation for the Greater Norwich Local Plan is running from the 29th January to the 16th March 2020.

The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) is being produced by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council working together with Norfolk County Council through the Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP).

It aims to produce a plan which will help to meet local housing and economic growth needs, whilst also protecting and enhancing the environment. This involves a number of stages of consultation, the latest of which is:

Stage C Regulation 18 Draft Strategy and Site Allocations

The consultation comprises of:

  • A Draft Strategy including the vision and objectives, and strategic policies.
  • A Sites Document that contains details of all the preferred sites for future development (excluding South Norfolk villages that will be allocated through the South Norfolk Villages Clusters Housing Site Allocation Document).
  • Booklets that explain why certain sites were preferred over others.
  • Various evidence documents (such as the Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment).

The aim is to publish the final version of the plan for the Regulation 19 pre-submission in 2021 for comments on procedural ‘soundness’. The plan is expected to be adopted in 2022.
