Greater Norwich Growth Board

Jobs, homes and prosperity for local people


What we do

The GNGB works in partnership, to monitor and drive forward the delivery of infrastructure which is required to support growth in Greater Norwich. We pool the CIL income received in our three district authority areas into one shared Infrastructure Investment Fund (IIF). The IIF is then used to support the delivery of strategic infrastructure projects across the full partnership area. Since 2014 we have allocated approximately £39m of IIF funding, and £54.5m of CIL supported borrowing which has helped lever in at least an additional £294m of match funding to deliver infrastructure projects across the Greater Norwich area.

We use IIF funding to support a programme of projects in Greater Norwich, which  deliver infrastructure across 4 core themes: Green Infrastructure, Transport, Education and Community (Which includes Libraries and Sport and Physical activity infrastructure).

The JCS is due to be superseded by the adoption of the Greater Norwich Local Plan. When this happens, the AMR will monitor the updated objectives to an extended period of 2038.
