To agree the Framework as a basis for the formulaiton of planning policy within Norfolk


The Norfolk Strategic Planning Framework and Statement of Common Ground 2019 and the agreements contained therein are endorsed by Breckland District Council.


The Council supports and welcomes the commitment to continued co-operative working and periodic review of the framework and in particular would support further collective work in relation to climate change.

Reasons for the decision:

To ensure that Breckland continues to have a strong voice within Norfolk and to establish key areas of common ground on key areas relating to local economy, housing, infrastructure, and environment and delivery matters in a cost effective manner.

Alternative options considered:

1)     That Cabinet endorses the draft Norfolk Strategic Planning Framework.

2)     That Cabinet does not endorse the Strategy and risks losing influence during the next round of plan preparation and failure under the duty to co-operate requirement.
