Wymondham Area Action Plan

The Wymondham Area Action Plan (WAAP) is part of the South Norfolk Local Plan. Wymondham will grow between now and 2026 with a minimum of 2,200 new homes and a further 20 hectares of employment land. The role of the WAAP is to balance the growth of the historic market town with protecting and enhancing the ‘Ketts Country Landscape’; to strengthen the role of the Tiffey Valley; maintain the open land between Wymondham and Hethersett; conserve the landscape setting of the town and abbey and create connection and linkages between green infrastructure.

The WAAP was formally adopted on 26 October 2015.

Other policies, particularly those in the Joint Core Strategy and Development Management Policies Document are also key to guiding appropriate development in Wymondham.
