Greater Norwich Local Plan

The Greater Norwich Local Plan is now out for consultation on potential sites in the Greater Norwich area for housing growth.

As part of this process a call for sites has identified possible areas for further housing developments, which are listed on the consultation page for GNLPBroadland Area. For ease, basic details have been extracted here but to comment on these potential sites please visit the GNLP – Broadland Area page above.

Site Reference  Site Address Site Area (ha) Description 
GNLP0082 Land to the South of Lingwood Road 4.85 Residential development of between 125 and 149 new dwellings
GNLP0099 Blofield Nurseries, Hall Road 2.85 Residential development of up to 25 houses
GNLP0252 Land at Yarmouth Road 4.53 Residential development for an undetermined number of homes
GNLP0508 Land to the north of Yarmouth Road 0.35 Residential development of approx. 9 dwellings

GNLP0300 Land east of Park Lane 0.78 Residential development for an undetermined number of homes
GNLP1048 Land to the East of Woodbastwick Road 4.18 Residential development of an unspecified number

The consultation runs from Monday 8th January to Thursday 15th March.

At this point, no decisions have been made as to where additional housing will go. The responses to the consultation and other evidence will help shape those decisions. There are roadshows planned in to allow parishioners to discuss issues with officers and may help form an opinion so you can have your say in the consultation.

The roadshows page lists all the dates but for ease we have listed the venues closest to Blofield / Blofield Heath.
