The East Norwich development represents a transformative opportunity for regeneration of the east Norwich area and the wider city. It is an ambitious project to create a sustainable new urban quarter for the city, supported by the preparation of a joined-up development masterplan for East Norwich and a commitment to substantial future investment. The development of the masterplan is one of the eight projects funded by the Towns Fund.
The masterplan will take approximately 12 months to complete. Whilst some sites are likely to come forward sooner than others, it will take many years for all of the sites to come forward and be developed.
Who is producing the masterplan?
Consultants Avison Young, Allies + Morrison, Hydrock and RPS have been working on producing the masterplan for the area, which is being steered by the East Norwich Partnership (ENP) – a public-private body composed of a number of key stakeholders. The work is being funded from a mixture of Town Deal funding from the government, as well as public and private funding from members of the partnership.

The pages below – based on information boards developed for a recent public drop in event – give an overview of the masterplan so far and set out the vision and scope for the area. You can also download the information boards.
Stakeholder and public engagement
Throughout the masterplanning process and beyond, landowners, residents, businesses and other interested parties will be given various opportunities to ask questions and contribute their thoughts. Read more about engagement so far.
