growth triangle area action plan

An Area Action Plan is being produced by the Council, which will set out how the area to the north east of Norwich known as the Growth Triangle should grow and develop over the next 15 years and beyond. Eventually the plan will become part of the planning policies for Broadland.

The Council is currently undertaking a public and stakeholder consultation exercise which asks for peoples' views on different options for the policies and proposals that should be contained within the Area Action Plan. The last consultation on the Growth Triangle closed in June 2013, the documents are remain available to read, as will future drafts.

further information

The Greater Norwich Joint Core Strategy says that the Growth Triangle will accommodate a minimum of 7,000 new homes by 2026, rising to at least 10,000 thereafter, alongside additional areas for employment. These homes are being planned as part of mixed use communities which include a range of infrastructure, services and employment opportunities. Important habitats and other environmental assets within this area will also be preserved and enhanced. The area proposals for the Eco-community at Rackheath and development to the north of Sprowston and Old Catton by Beyond Green lie within the area identified as the Growth Triangle.
