With the strategy for growth now in place it is crucial that the hard work continues as the Greater Norwich authorities move into the delivery phase.
The Greater Norwich Infrastructure Plan (GNIP) has been prepared to help co-ordinate and manage the delivery of strategic infrastructure to support growth, a high quality of life and enhanced natural environment. The plan has evolved from the previous Local Investment Plan and Programme for Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk to provide a more focused delivery plan. It is not an exhaustive list - it is a living document, regularly updated to reflect the latest information.
The Greater Norwich Infrastructure Plan supports the delivery of the Joint Core Strategy for Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk, local economic strategies, the Greater Norwich City Deal and the Norfolk and Suffolk Economic Strategy (produced by the New Anglia Local Economic Partnership).
The Greater Norwich Infrastructure Plan informs the prioritisation of investment and delivery in the Joint Five Year Infrastructure Investment Plan, and current delivery in the Annual Growth Programme. While mainstream funding provides the primary support for new infrastructure, contributions from new development such as Section 106 legal agreements and Community Infrastructure Levy are also important. For the earlier years, for which there is greater certainty, the plan includes a more detailed infrastructure delivery profile.
The Greater Norwich Infrastructure Plan, including its supporting infrastructure framework, can be viewed below.
