Greater Norwich Local Plan Call for Sites

Submitted Sites

An important part of the process of preparing the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) is to identify sites which might have the potential for development to meet required needs.  The first stage in this process is a “Call for Sites” which was held during the spring and summer of 2016. This enabled those who wished to promote parcels of land for a particular use or development to submit this land for consideration for potential allocation in the GNLP. Potential uses include housing, employment, leisure and community uses. 

Proposals for other parcels of land can still be made. Please contact the Greater Norwich Local Plan team for advice. 

Information on all sites submitted during 2016 is available in the schedules and maps below. Details of sites submitted during 2017 will be published in the autumn.

Please note that these sites have not been subject to any analysis and no decisions have been made on their suitability. 
For Broadland and South Norfolk districts sites are listed by parish, and so it is advised to check for sites that may be adjacent to settlements in neighbouring parishes.
Please also note that some files are of a large size and may take longer than usual to download, so your patience is appreciated.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many additional houses will be required?

This is not known for certain at present. However, based on the findings of the Central Norfolk Strategic Housing Market Assessment, which was published in January 2016, it is likely that approximately 12,000 additional houses will be required from 2012 to 2036. These 12,000 homes would be over and above those which currently benefit from planning permission or which are set out in existing Local Plan documents. This annual level of growth (2012-2036) is only slightly higher than the existing annual level of growth set out in the Joint Core Strategy.

Is there a need for additional employment land as well as new homes?

A key element of the GNLP will be to ensure that the need for employment land is met, alongside the need for new homes. There are significant areas of undeveloped land already allocated for employment uses. It is not yet know how many additional sites will be required to be allocated to meet the jobs needs within the area. Further research will be undertaken as part of the production of the GNLP to ensure that the right amount of deliverable employment land is provided.

Does this mean that all or most submitted sites will be allocated?

No. Experience shows that far more greenfield sites are likely to be submitted than will be needed. Many sites will be inappropriate due to constraints and/or remoteness from services, and other sites simply will not be needed, even if not inappropriate in principle.

What does this mean for the countryside?

Development on brownfield sites throughout the three districts will be maximised; however, in a largely rural area such as Greater Norwich it is inevitable that some new development will have to be on greenfield sites. Each district will need to compile (and keep updated) a “brownfield register” of sites which could be developed for housing within five years, and give “permission in principle” on a high percentage of such sites. The GNLP will strive to find the best possible balance between meeting the development needs of the area and protecting the special qualities of the countryside.

Is it known where development will be focused?

The JCS, and related site allocation documents, already plan for a significant amount of the homes, jobs and infrastructure required in Greater Norwich. Development will continue to come forward in accordance with these plans. In terms of the additional homes required across the area, the distribution of development has not yet been determined. However, fundamental tenets of good planning will apply, so development will be well-related to services, facilities and other infrastructure.

How will the sites be assessed?

All Norfolk authorities consulted publicly on the methodology for the Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) in the six weeks to May 2016 (see http://www.northnorfolk.org/planning/21445.asp). In accordance with Government requirements, the HELAA must identify how much land might be available to accommodate future housing and economic growth in each district, although it is important to note that the inclusion of a site in a HELAA does not necessarily mean that it will be allocated for development, and/or that planning permission would be granted. Further site assessments will then take place during the production of the GNLP in order to determine which sites should be allocated.

When will the assessment of sites take place?

This will start once the Call for Sites is completed. It is currently expected that the HELAA process will be complete by late spring 2017. Further assessment of all sites will then be completed by summer 2017 to identify both favoured and “reasonable alternative” sites. At this point the emerging GNLP will be subject to public consultation. Any representations submitted will then be taken into account when drafting the final version of the GNLP for submission to the Secretary of State for independent examination.

What if my site is already allocated for a specific land use in a current Local Plan or Neighbourhood Plan?

The starting point for the review assumes that all sites identified for development in a current local or neighbourhood plan remain appropriate and will not need to be replaced in the new Local Plan. Therefore, sites identified for a specific land use in current plans do not need to be promoted again through this process, unless a change of use is sought. The Council’s may however contact those with an interest in current allocations during the production of the GNLP to ensure that the relevant site remains available, viable and deliverable.

Where can I get further information?

The Greater Norwich Local Plan team can be contacted by emailing info@gnlp.org.uk; or by telephone on 01603 306603.
