• 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.

  • NCC – charges for disposing of DIY waste from 1st April 2018

    DIY waste

    Service update: from 1 April 2018 there will be a charge for the disposal of all DIY type construction and demolition waste. There will no longer be a free 80 litre or one item concession.

    Up until 1 April you can continue to dispose of one item or the equivalent of one 80lt sack per household per week for free.

    DIY waste is classed as construction and demolition waste, not household waste, and whilst we’ve previously accepted small amounts for free, we can no longer do this.  Our services need to reduce their costs. We prefer to save money by changing our policies rather than by reducing opening hours or closing a recycling centre. Removing the free DIY concession will help us to do this.

    DIY waste can be disposed of through our ‘Pay as you throw’ service.  Other options include hiring a skip or employing a licenced waste carrier. Please make sure to factor in the cost of disposing of DIY waste when planning your latest DIY project.

    For more information about the change in our policy read our press release.

    Prices per 80 litre sack or single item

    • Unsorted/non-recyclable DIY waste – £5
    • Flat glass – £5 (classed as non-recyclable at Mile Cross Recycling Centre)
    • Rubble – £3
    • Plasterboard – £9 (£15 at Mile Cross)
    • Timber – £3
    • Scrap metal – no charge
