Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA)
This SHMA provides evidence on the Objectively Assessed Need (OAN) for housing across the Central Norfolk area

(Norwich City, Broadland, Breckland, North Norfolk and South Norfolk, together with the Broads Authority Executive Area), taking account of the impact of 2014 based CLG household projections, 2015 ONS mid-year population estimates and more general updates to best practice in relation to the calculation of OAN. This study also produces new estimates for affordable housing need across Central Norfolk. Since it was published, the government has produced draft guidance on a standard methodology for calculating housing need. This proposed new approach is reflected in the Growth Options Consultation document, see paragraphs 4.13 to 4.25 and questions 4 to 6 in particular. If you have comments on the study, please quote the relevant document and paragraph numbers you are commenting on.

Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report (for information only, previously consulted on)
As part of the preparation of the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) an appraisal of the social, environmental and economic impact of the plan must be carried out. This appraisal is known as a Sustainability Appraisal (SA). The SA will also meet the requirements for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the GNLP.

In order to identify the scope and level of detail of the information to be included in the SA a scoping report has been produced for the GNLP. Between 20 June and 15 August 2016 the authorities consulted with Historic England, Natural England, the Environment Agency and other relevant bodies on the content of the Scoping Report.

Having taken account of representations made in response to the consultation, a series of amendments were made to the Scoping Report. These amendments were agreed by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council between January and March 2017.

A copy of the final SA scoping report is available to view below. This is for information only. The most up to date SA document is the Interim Sustainability Appraisal of the Growth Options consultation document.
