The Greater Norwich Growth Board is a partnership unlike any other in the UK. Norfolk County Council, Norwich City Council, South Norfolk District Council, Broadland District Council and the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership are the five partners that make up the GNGB. We have chosen to work together to accelerate the delivery of infrastructure within the Greater Norwich area, because we recognise the benefits that can be achieved by looking beyond our individual administrative boundaries.
Since the establishment of the GNGB in 2014 our partnership working practices have been celebrated as an exemplar model of working by the Planning Advisory Service (PAS), who recognise that we are pursuing ambitious growth agendas under strong strategic leadership.
Our pooling arrangements of Community Infrastructure Levy contributions within the Infrastructure Investment Fund are a unique arrangement in the UK. Since 2014 we have allocated over £29m of IIF funding, and £46m of CIL supported borrowing has levered in at least an additional £240m to deliver infrastructure projects in Greater Norwich.
The GNGB is made up of the council leaders of Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council, South Norfolk Council and Norfolk County Council, as well as the Chair of the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership.
