Gypsies and Travellers Local Plan

The Council had previously been working on the preparation of a Gypsies and Travellers Local Plan. However, a revision to the Local Development Scheme was agreed by Cabinet in December 2017, and in this it was agreed that work on the Gypsies and Travellers Local Plan would not continue. Planning to meet the accommodation needs of Gypsies and Travellers is being progressed through the Greater Norwich Local Plan . As part of the evidence base for Gypsies and Travellers accommodation needs, a Caravans and Houseboats Needs Assessment (covering five Norfolk authorities, plus the Broads Authority) was commissioned and published in autumn 2017 and is available in the downloads below.
