Norwich, a success story

Norwich is a success story. It seamlessly combines the modern with the historic, and is a vibrant city with a thriving economy and cultural scene.

In truth, there is much to celebrate, but as with any city, it has some challenges.

These issues include poor educational attainment and poor health. The severity of these varies considerably between different wards in the city.

Why we need a vision for the city

To build on the successes and address the challenges, Norwich needs a long-term vision of what we want the city to be like in 2040 and what we need to do to make this happen.

Our shared vision for the city

In November 2018, we published the Norwich 2040 City Vision document which sets out the five themes which form the foundation of a shared vision for the city:

  • creative
  • fair
  • liveable
  • connected
  • dynamic
