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 are unable to accept any new sites, revisions to existing sites or settlement boundary extension proposals after 30th April 2020. Any sites received after 30 April 2020 will not be included in the site assessment process or the submission version of the plan. Therefore, any late sites would need to be submitted to the Inspector and site promoters will be expected to provide sufficient information to allow the Inspector to compare the site to those included in the plan.

We have identified three proposed new settlements at Honingham Thorpe, Hethel, and Silfield as reasonable alternatives, but none of these form a part of the growth strategy for this local plan.

South Norfolk villages will be allocated through a separate South Norfolk Village Clusters Site Allocation Document. For more information contact the South Norfolk Planning team on 01508 533805 or email

This is the draft GNLP Sites document. It is the second document we are consulting on. It contains draft policies for the new housing and employment sites we propose to allocate for development to help implement the draft GNLP Strategy document as well as the allocations we propose to carry forward from the current Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk Local Plans. For consultation purposes the document also contains reasonable alternative and unreasonable alternative sites.

Comment on Sites Plan

The site assessment booklets for each settlement or village cluster provide extra information on how sites have been chosen. These booklets may help you in making your comments on sites.
