The adopted Wroxham Neighbourhood Development Plan has been produced by Wroxham Parish Council in consultation with residents, businesses, landowners, developers and other stakeholders.
The Broads Authority and Broadland District Council have both adopted the Wroxham Neighbourhood Plan which is now a material consideration in determining planning applications.
In addition to the overall vision the proposed plan contains policies that seek to address specific local issues and help shape the way Wroxham grows in the future. A number of the policies relate directly to comments and concerns raised by local residents.
Wroxham Parish Council submitted its proposed Neighbourhood Development Plan to Broadland District Council in May 2017.
In accordance with the amended Town and Country Planning Act 1990, Broadland District Council has made an initial assessment of the Neighbourhood Plan and the supporting documents and is satisfied that these comply with the specified criteria.
The Plan was then published for a period of six weeks and representations invited from members of the public and other consultation bodies. Representations received were sent (along with the Plan and supporting documents) to an independent examiner.
The examiner conducted their examination based on written evidence and the report concludes that the plan meets the basic conditions and that it should proceed to a referendum in Wroxham.
Broadland District Council and the Broads Authority considered the recommendations of the examiner and agreed with his proposed modifications of the Neighbourhood Plan.
The Neighbourhood Plan proceeded to a referendum on 21 March 2019. Declaration of the result of the Referendum.
