About the Local Plan
Our current Adopted Norwich Local Plan (November 2014) which is made up of three main documents, is the local development plan for Norwich.
The documents set out strategic priorities for the greater Norwich area that allow us to manage development. They also include specific policies that we use to make decisions on planning applications across the area.
The Joint Core Strategy (JCS) sets out the strategy for regeneration and growth in the greater Norwich area up to 2026, while the two plans (Site allocations and Development management) provide detailed polices to guide and implement this strategy.
Supplementary planning documents provide additional guidance to support specific Local Plan policies .
From 1 April 2016 the Northern City Centre Area Action Plan 2010 no longer forms part of the Local Plan.
We are working with Broadland District Council, South Norfolk District Council and Norfolk County Council to prepare the new Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP), which will plan for development until 2036.
Once adopted in 2020-21 the new GNLP will supercede the JCS and Norwich’s Site allocations and site specific policies plan.
