The GNLP consists of two main elements: 

  1. The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) Strategy which is the planning strategy for growth in Greater Norwich from 2018 to 2038 together with supporting thematic policies.
  2. GNLP Sites document which contains the policies for sites we propose to allocate for development to help deliver the GNLP.  

There are also supporting and evidence base documents available for inspection including the Sustainability Appraisal, the Habitats Regulations Assessment, the Equalities Impact Assessment.

Note to Bressingham and Fersfield:
A separate allocation plan is being developed by South Norfolk Council for the village cluster sites in South Norfolk which will come forward in due course.

This does not exclude you from making representations on the plan as described.
