Groups facing complex issues such as allocating sites for development or including design codes in their neighbourhood plan, such as is the case with the DDNP can apply for a technical support grant by AECOM. We were successful in securing a grant, and AECOM produced the following documents on our behalf:
AECOM Housing Needs Assessment (July 2019)
This assessment provides vital evidence to help understand the expected demand for housing in our neighbourhood plan area over the period of the plan (usually around 20 years)
This document assesses the 35 sites put forward for possible development
The follow on document assesses a further 17 possible sites, plus makes some revisions to the initial 2019 report (published above).
This document, produced by professional urban designers explores local areas and to produce bespoke rural design guides, or codes, for potential development or regeneration sites.
The purpose of the South Norfolk Place-Making Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) is to promote and secure high quality design in new development within South Norfolk. It also makes clear what we expect when deciding planning applications
Collective Community Planning (Consultants to the DDNPSG)
This single report gives the results of the second consultation which took place Nov/Dec 2020. The questionnaire invited feedback on newly suggested sites and local green spaces in five of the seven parishes in the DDNP area. To read the results of the first consultation which took place July/Aug 2020, these were produced by individual parish and can be viewed on the 'Parish Pages' tab, top right.
