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 consultation finishes on Monday 10 June 2013.

It is intended 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.
The ongoing production of the Area Action Plan is dependent upon the parts of the Joint Core Strategy relating to the Growth Triangle being found sound through Independent Examination and subsequently being adopted as planning policy.
Drop-in surgeries will be at the following locations and times throughout the consultation period. If you have any queries or questions about the Area Action Plan and the Growth Triangle, please pop in for a chat with a Council officer:
