Norfolk Local Plans Bulletin - Greater Norwich Local Plan

By Nicole Wright | 26.01.24

We are now well into the new year with a general election on the horizon. We have compiled local plan updates which we hope will provide clarity on the planning framework to guide important decisions. This update reports on the status of local plans in Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP), Norfolk.


A new local Plan for Broadland, Norwich, and South Norfolk

The new Greater Norwich Local Plan will be adopted this spring.

Broadland District Council and South Norfolk Council are working with Norwich City Council and Norfolk County Council to prepare the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP).

Last Autumn, the Greater Norwich Development Partnership invited responses on proposed Main Modifications to the GNLP. These were modifications that the inspectors considered necessary for the plan to be sound.

The final report from the inspectors on the GNLP is expected by mid-February with adoption scheduled for 29th March 2024.
