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. 

What evidence will you base your decisions on?

We have received evidence on housing need; economic growth; strategic flood risk; caravans and houseboats needs; a habitats regulations assessment and a housing viability study. We have asked for views from a variety of consultees on the suitability of sites proposed to us, and have had meetings and workshops with stakeholders including transport, water, electricity, health and education providers, developers and parish councils. A sustainability appraisal is an important part of plan production. We may need further evidence as the plan progresses.
