Background to the development management policies plan
The Norwich development management policies plan development plan document (also known as the Development management policies plan) provides detailed planning policies to help deliver the Joint core strategy and to guide how the council responds to planning applications for new development in the city. The document refers to the Joint core strategy for high level objectives and principles and also includes policies on locally specific issues not already covered by national policy or the Joint core strategy.
This Development management policies plan contains 33 policies, broadly based on the themes of the Joint core strategy. Supplementary text is also provided for each policy, giving further detail, explanation and clarification.
The plan should be read alongside the policies set out in the Site allocations plan and the accompanying policies map.
The council submitted the DM policies plan to the Secretary of State for independent inspection on 17 April 2013. It has been submitted at the same time as the Site allocations plan.
The submission documents are below. Supporting “core documents” can be viewed in the documents library.

The regulation 20 representations made through the last consultation on the plan (from August to October 2012) are available here. A summary of the representations is in the Regulation 22 statement.
The plan will go through independent public examination by an Inspector, Chris Anstey BA (Hons) DIPTP DIPLA MRTPI, to hear outstanding objections and assess if it is sound, positively prepared and legally compliant and can therefore be adopted by the council.
