APPENDIX 1 – THE GROWTH OPTIONS

The growth options tables 1 to 6 below divide housing figures into commitment, the plan baseline and how the additional homes from the various options would be broadly distributed, including percentage figures of overall growth. "Conceptual" maps are also provided for each option.

The growth options tables 1 to 6 below use the most up to date information on commitment from April 2017 andgroup commitment and growth in parishes into planning areas as follows:

Option 1 Concentration close to Norwich

The majority of the plan's housing requirement to 2036 is already committed. The total requirement for new allocations is 7,200. In order to ensure that urban brownfield sites are maximised and rural needs are addressed, all options include a "baseline position" which provides for 3,900 homes. Therefore there are sites for 3,300 further dwellings to find. Option 1 would concentrate all the 3,300 additional dwellings close to Norwich as urban extensions or in some of the closest villages.

The current figure of 1,500 homes in the baseline aims to maximise growth on brownfield sites whilst retaining sites for employment, town centre and open space uses. It will be kept under review as the plan is progressed.

Option 2 Transport Corridors

The majority of the plan's housing requirement to 2036 is already committed. The total requirement for new allocations is 7,200. In order to ensure that urban brownfield sites are maximised and rural needs are addressed, all options include a "baseline position" which provides for 3,900 homes. Therefore there are sites for 3,300 further dwellings to find. Option 2 would concentrate all of the additional 3,300 dwellings in the main transport corridors. There is a degree of overlap with Option 1 as urban fringe locations tend to be well served by transport corridors.

The majority of the plan's housing requirement to 2036 is already committed. The total requirement for new allocations is 7,200. In order to ensure that urban brownfield sites are maximised and rural needs are addressed, all options include a "baseline position" which provides for 3,900 homes. Therefore there are sites for 3,300 further dwellings to find. Option 3 would concentrate the great majority of the additional 3,300 dwellings in the A11 corridor, with significant growth in the south west fringe, Wymondham and a new settlement in or near the corridor.

Option 4 Dispersal

The majority of the plan's housing requirement to 2036 is already committed. The total requirement for new allocations is 7,200. In order to ensure that urban brownfield sites are maximised and rural needs are addressed, all options include a "baseline position" which provides for 3,900 homes. Therefore there are sites for 3,300 further dwellings to find. Option 4 provides high levels of dispersal to villages while also putting a limited amount of growth in the Norwich fringe parishes and the A11 corridor.

In order to ensure that urban brownfield sites are maximised and rural needs are addressed, all options include a "baseline position" which provides for 3,900 homes. Therefore there are sites for 3,300 further dwellings to find. Option 5 is similar to Option 4 in that it provides high levels of dispersal to villages while also putting a limited amount of growth in the Norwich fringe parishes and the A11 corridor. It differs to Option 4 in that it diverts some of the village growth to a new settlement.
