The Valley in Peril

Greater Norwich Development Plan Consultation:

Is it the end of the Yare Valley Green Space as we know it?

The Greater Norwich Local Plan is out for public consultation and comments must be in by Thursday 15th March at 1700, details can be found at A roadshow with an opportunity to talk with Council Officers will take place on Saturday 17th February from 10 am to 4 pm at the Norwich Millennium Library, NR2 1TF.

For the future well being of the Yare Valley it is important our members make their voice heard.

Please take a careful look at these plans to see how well they are likely to protect our green spaces. A particular concern is the large number of sites that are being put forward for development that lie in the Yare Valley Green Space. Go to and look under Colney and Cringleford and Norwich for the maps.
Development on many of the submitted sites could have a devastating effect on the valley as a green space.

The details of the Society’s most serious concerns will be posted in the coming days, but please look at these plans and prepare your own comments. In any event, be sure to send them in, either before or after, you hear from the Society further.
