An important part of the process in preparing the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) is to identify sites which might have the potential for development to meet required needs. The first stage in this process is a “Call for Sites” which was held during the spring and summer of 2016. This enabled those who wished to promote parcels of land for a particular use or development to submit this land for consideration for potential allocation in the GNLP. Potential uses include housing, employment, leisure and community uses.
A moratorium on accepting new sites is being held from the beginning of August 2017 whilst the final preparations are made to the Regulation 18 consultation draft of the Local Plan. Land owners and agents will though be able to submit new sites once again as part of the Regulation 18 consultation that is due to be held between January and March 2018. In the Regulation 18 consultation draft of the Local Plan will be assessments of 2016 ‘Call for Sites’ submissions and information on sites more recently received during 2017.
The ‘Call for Sites’ submissions, as of March 2017, are available below. Please note that these sites have not been subject to any analysis and no decisions have been made on their suitability. For Broadland and South Norfolk districts sites are listed by parish, and so it is advised to check for sites that may be adjacent to settlements in neighbouring parishes. Please also note that some files are of a large size and may take longer than usual to download, so your patience is appreciated.
