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).

We aim 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.

We are currently at stage B of the “Regulation 18” phase, the New, Revised and Small Sites consultation.  This consultation will run from 9am on Monday 29th October to 5pm on Friday 14th December 2018 and we are asking for your views on these sites. 

How will the transport system cope with growth?

In order to reduce environmental impact including contributions to climate change and air pollution, it is important that we choose locations for growth that reduce the need to travel, promote walking and cycling and make best use of existing transport networks and planned improvements. As growth options are developed there will be further work to identify what additional transport improvements will be required to support the chosen growth option and sites.

As well as the work being done for the local plan, Norfolk County Council is looking at wider issues on our transport networks and is undertaking a review of the transport strategy for the Norwich area and network improvement strategies for market towns. These strategies will be developed alongside the emerging growth plans and will look at the opportunities for wider improvements to the transport system.
