Bowthorpe Three Score

Background to Three Score

Three Score is the last Norwich City Council-owned land designated for development in the Bowthorpe area.

In 2013, outline planning permission was secured for 1,000 homes, community facilities, a care home and open space on the 32-hectare site.

The outline application provides over 10 hectares of public open space, retains existing features such as important tree belts and hedges and also proposes a network of cycle and walking routes across the site.

As part of the development of the site we agreed to work in partnership with Norfolk County Council, NPS and NorseCare to provide a housing with care and dementia care facility.

We supported NorseCare’s funding application to the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) for care and specialised support housing and donated the 2.3-hectare plot of land - on which the care village is sited.
