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 to assist in the recovery from the COVID crisis, whilst also protecting and enhancing the environment. The local plan will cover the period from 2018 to 2038. It will set out a vision and strategy for growth and include policies which will be used to determine planning applications in the Greater Norwich area.
Work started on the local plan in 2016 and it has been through a number of stages, including an evidence gathering stage which led to the plan being drafted. The draft plan was the subject of a public consultation in March 2020. The feedback gathered through the public consultation has been used to shape the local plan, which is now available for review.
