The Development Management Policies Local Plan (DM policies plan) sets out detailed planning policies to help guide and manage change and development in Norwich until 2026.
The policies apply across the whole city, as well as in designated areas. This includes areas which will generally be protected from being developed (such as open spaces and river valleys) and areas which will be reserved for certain kinds of development such as shopping and business.
The DM policies plan builds on and supports the sustainable growth strategy for the wider area set out in the adopted Joint Core Strategy. It also closely follows national planning requirements for sustainable development and positive, community based planning
Please note: Due to changes made by government through the housing standards review, from 1 October 2015 the information notes should be read alongside the adopted local plan. View the notes and cabinet report.
