  • Greater Norwich Local Plan

    Sent on behalf of Mike Burrell, Greater Norwich Planning Policy Manager


    Dear Clerk


    This email is to update you on the status of the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP).


    The GNLP has been produced jointly by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council and was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in July 2021 for examination.  Examination hearings led by Independent Inspectors appointed by the Secretary of State took place during 2022 and 2023 with consultation on main modifications between 25 October and 6 December 2023.  The Inspectors’ Report was published on 20 February 2024.  The conclusion of the report is that the GNLP is sound with the inclusion of the recommended main modifications.


    As detailed in an email sent on 13 March 2024 the GNLP has already been formally adopted by Norwich City Council at a meeting of Full Council on 12 March 2024. In accordance with the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) and the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended), the Greater Norwich Development Partnership is writing to notify you that the GNLP has now also been formally adopted by South Norfolk Council at a meeting of Full Council on 25 March 2024 and Broadland District Council at a meeting of Full Council on 28 March 2024.  The Plan is now subject to a 6 week legal challenge period which ends on 24 April for Norwich City Council, 7 May for South Norfolk Council and 10 May for Broadland District Council.


    Copies of the adoption notices for South Norfolk and Broadland Councils are attached to this email and are also available to view on the GNLP website at www.gnlp.org.uk alongside the final local plan and other supporting documents.


    Copies of the plan will be available for public viewing during normal office hours at the following locations:


    • Broadland District Council and South Norfolk Council offices, The Horizon Centre, Broadland Business Park, Peachman Way, Norwich, NR7 0WF. Mon. – Fri. 08.30 – 17.00 (by appointment).
    • Norwich City Council, City Hall, St Peters Street, Norwich, NR2 1NH Mon. – Fri. 08.45 – 13.00 & 14.00 – 17.00 (by appointment)


    Please contact the GNLP team on 01603 306603 or email [email protected] to make an appointment.


    You can also view the Local Plan documentation on the GNLP website in Norfolk libraries using their computers.

  • Postwich Park & Ride – Still Open!

    Postwick park and ride is still open!


    The trial opening of Postwick park and ride (originally due to end this month) has been extended.


    The site will now remain open until the wider review and re-tendering of the whole park and ride service which we expect to start in summer 2024.


    The Postwick services stops at Norwich Rail Station on Thorpe Road and Castle Meadow on all journey into the city centre with buses running every 20 minutes from 7:20am.

    Tickets cost just £3.00 for an Adult for all day travel (much cheaper than the city car parks!). Concessions are £2.00 ( with a concessionary bus pass) and children under 5 travel for FREE.

    All additional passengers pay only £1 when they travel with another full paying person on any Norwich park & ride so great when travelling as a group.

    Unfortunately passenger number across all park & ride services do remain low, with Postwick having the lowest use of all the sites. In these difficult financial times we need to see passenger numbers increase across all of our sites to help keep Norwich park and ride sustainable and running for the future. So next time you’re heading into Norwich why not consider using the park & ride.
