Great Yarmouth Borough Council – New Local Plan Options Consultation

6th Jan to 17th Feb 2023

Great Yarmouth Borough Council is preparing a new Local Plan which will set out a strategy for the development of the Borough over the period to 2041. It will set out the amount of new development needed and will determine where that development will go and how it should be delivered.

The new Local Plan will also contain planning policies that will be used in determining planning applications. The Local Plan will take into account the policies of existing and emerging Neighbourhood Plans and set a framework for future Neighbourhood Plans.

Everybody is invited to participate in a consultation to help inform the new Local Plan. This consultation aims to get your views on some of the key matters the new Local Plan will need to contain. The consultation comprises a series of questions to help the Council prepare the Local Plan.

The consultation seeks views on how much development we should be planning for and where that development should go. The consultation also asks questions on what infrastructure is needed and what planning policies they should have to manage new development.
