Great Yarmouth Borough Council Consultation on Draft Local Plan Part 2

(Development Management Policies, Site Allocations, and Revised Housing Target)

The consultation on Draft Local Plan Part 2 will take place over a six week period from 20th August to 30th September 2018 (inclusive).

The Draft Local Plan Part 2 document shows what the GYBC is thinking about having in terms of:

  • detailed policies for planning applications;
  • allocations of sites for development;
  • a reduction in the overall housing target for the Borough, and a few minor updates to other Core Strategy policies;
  • the replacement of the remaining old ‘saved’ policies (from the former Borough-wide Local Plan of 2001); and
  • changes to the Local Plan Policies Map, to give effect to the above.

The Great Yarmouth Borough Council wants to know what people think of these provisional proposals, and whether there are any better options, before it makes up its mind on what policies and allocations it formally proposes to adopt.

Once it is completed and adopted, the Local Plan Part 2 will provide the detailed policies to help achieve the general type and distribution of development for the plan period up to 2030 already decided by the Core Strategy (Local Plan Part 1), which the Council adopted in 2015.

The consultation documents comprise:

  • Main Documents
    1. Draft Local Plan Part 2
    2. Draft Policies Map (formerly known as a proposals map).  This is in two sheets, one for the whole plan area, and an inset showing the Great Yarmouth town/ Gorleston area in greater detail.  Extracts from the Policies Map for each settlement, at a larger scale, are also included in the relevant chapters of the Draft Local Plan Part 2 document itself.
  • Supporting documents:
    1. Draft Sustainability Appraisal Report, showing how the different potential options were evaluated.
    2. Draft Habitats Regulations Assessment Report, showing how the Draft Plan’s potential impacts on internationally protected habitats and species was evaluated and is addressed.
    3. Draft ‘Constraints and Opportunities Map’ (showing areas and locations which are not defined by the Local Plan but which may be subject to particular policies – e.g. Conservation Areas and Agricultural Land Grading).

The documents are all available on the Council’s website via the following link: https://great-yarmouth-consult.objective.co.uk where they would encourage you to comment online.
