Greater Norwich Growth Programme

The Greater Norwich Growth Programme is an annual programme that identifies infrastructure schemes to be prioritised for delivery and development within each financial year, using pooled CIL funding. The schemes are drawn from the Joint Five Year Infrastructure Investment Plan (see below), and are developed and approved by the Greater Norwich Growth Board.

The Growth Programme is assessed annually and sets out:

  • The financial implications for income and expenditure for the forthcoming year.
  • The cumulative financial impact of funding and borrowing commitment from earlier years.
  • The long-term financial implications for the end of the programme period, i.e. 2026.

Joint Five Year Infrastructure Investment Plan

The Five Year Infrastructure Investment Plan identifies the projects from the GNIP whose delivery is considered to be a priority for achieving the economic growth targets, as set out in the Joint Core Strategy and the Greater Norwich City Deal. These projects will all be considered for CIL funding, but only the current year’s projects (known as the Annual Growth Programme) have had their CIL funding confirmed.

The plan also includes

  • Confirmation of CIL income received by the GNGB each year since 2014
  • Revised CIL income projections for the next five years,
  • Delivery updates from all CIL funded projects,
  • A list of all projects that have been allocated CIL by the GNGB together with amounts spent.
  • Planned preparatory work for infrastructure schemes in future years.

The Joint Five Year Infrastructure Investment Plan 21-26 can be accessed from the link below:

The projects within this Plan were approved for inclusion within the 21/22 Annual Growth Programme by each partners Full Council in February 2021.
