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. 

Have you already decided where the new growth is going?

No. No decisions have been made yet on where the additional growth needed to 2036 (for 7,200 additional homes) will go. The responses to the consultation and other evidence will help us decide. Sites for around 35,700 homes are already identified in the existing local plans or have planning permission. This is 83% of the sites needed for the period to 2036 (in total for around 42,900 homes). Far more sites have been submitted for us to consider than will be needed. This means that there is a good range of sites available to help meet growth needs and to protect and enhance the environment.
