    About the site

    Rackheath Taylor Wimpey red line plan

     

    The site is located at land off Green Lane West and comprises of two parcels of lands which are separated by the new Norwich Northern Distributor Road, now named the Broadland Northway. 

     

    Planning context 

     

    The site is identified in the emerging Greater Norwich Local Plan as policy GNLP0172. In October 2018, the outline planning consent for up to 205 homes was approved by the Broadland District Planning Committee. This granted permission for the principle of development and the proposed access arrangements from Green Lane West, and the masterplan principles set out in the Design and Access Statement.

     

    The Greater Norwich Local Plan will build on the long-established joint working arrangements for Greater Norwich, which have delivered the current Joint Core Strategy (JCS) for the area. The JCS plans for the housing and jobs needs of the area to 2026. The GNLP will ensure that these needs continue to be met to 2036.
