Government announcement about nutrient neutrality, 29 August 2023

We are awaiting further updates following the government’s announcement about developments affected by nutrient neutrality in our area. 

Since March 2022, the city council, along with other councils in Norfolk and elsewhere in the UK, has not been able to grant planning permission for developments which are likely to add nutrient pollution to water. 

We have been working hard to find the best solution to address the issue. That work continues. We will be in touch with key updates with anyone whose applications have been affected by the issue.
