Greater Norwich Growth Programme

The Greater Norwich Growth Programme is developed and approved by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council, South Norfolk Council, Norfolk County Council and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, working as the Greater Norwich Growth Board. The programme is drawn together from the annual Business Plans of Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk Councils and identifies schemes to be prioritised for delivery and development within each financial year.

The Growth Programme is assessed annually and sets out the financial implications for income and expenditure for the forthcoming year and the cumulative financial impact of funding decisions on the Programme given funding and borrowing commitment from earlier years. It takes account of the long-term financial implications for the end of the programme period i.e. 2026.

The Councils will approve the Greater Norwich Growth Programme at least annually.

The Annual Growth Programme for 16/17 was approved by the Greater Norwich Growth Board at its meeting on 24 September 2015.  The current document can be viewed here.
