New Local Plan (formerly LDF)
We have recently consulted with you on a number of different documents that form part of the Local Plan. Responses to these consultations are currently being considered and we will be consulting on the Council's Preferred Options for growth later this year. Please see the links below to find out more.
- Site Specific and Allocations DPD
- Wymondham Area Action Plan
- Development Management Policies DPD
- Long Stratton Area Action Plan
- Neighbourhood Development Plans
The Local Plan is made up of various documents, see How the documents fit together [PDF], each of which is developed, in consultation with the community of South Norfolk before it is finally adopted. The consultation processes, who and how we consult, are explained in our Statement of Community Involvement.
The documents being produced in the Local Plan are shown in a timetable which is called the Local Development Scheme.
We have been working with Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and Norfolk County as part of the Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP) to produce and adopt a Joint Core Strategy Document which sets out the strategic growth for housing and employment over the next 15 years. This document was adopted in March 2011.
Following a legal challenge to specific aspects of the JCS, the GNDP partners needed to give further consideration to the distribution of the 9,000 homes in Broadland's part of the Norwich Policy Area and to produce a new Sustainability Appraisal accordingly. The GNDP was required to re-examine the preferred "north east growth triangle" option and give detailed consideration to any reasonable alternatives to it. Details of the proposed submission content of the Joint Core Strategy for Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council how to get involved are available on the GNDP website.
We are now working together on a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Visit the GNDP website for further information.
We also have other supplementary planning documents and background studies and evidence, which can be downloaded below.
