The Greater Norwich Local Plan

Written by Brian Frith.

Greater Norwich Local Plan

NEW! Click here to read the comments which have been submitted by Forncett Parish Council (Added 16/03/18)

All of what follows is a summary gleaned from the web-site and a meeting for Parish Council reps. Hopefully correct ... but no guarantees! The GNLP team have recently said 'we are currently working on making some improvements to the website' - so some details of how to locate items may be subject to change.

Over recent years we have had various South Norfolk Development Plans. This Greater Norwich Local Plan encompasses Broadland, South Norfolk, Norwich City (in collaboration with Norfolk County Council) and, if adopted, will supersede all individual plans and last until 2036.

Everything you need to know at www.gnlp.org.uk ... but you might need patience to find your way around the site ... so read on!

Various 'Roadshows' are being held throughout the area: the one at South Norfolk Council Offices is Thursday 22nd February 10.30 am to 4.30 pm

Public consultation on 'Regulation 18' - the 'juicy bit' about development priorities, preferred sites etc - finishes on Thursday 15th March (NOW EXTENDED TO THURSDAY 22nd MARCH). Express your views online (preferred) or phone 01603 306603 to get a 'paper' response form. In summer 2019 at 'Regulation 19' draft plan will be produced. If approved by the District Councils, the government inspector and the Government it should become 'the plan' in late 2020.
