Thanks for coming along!
Welcome to our public consultation event.
This second set of events builds upon the feedback and comments we received last year. We’d like to show you the progress we’ve made in preparing a more detailed plan for Anglia Square and how that plan responds, where possible, to your priorities and views.
What stage of consultation are we at?
Our December events were about establishing priorities and aspirations for the future of Anglia Square. To accompany those events some very simple and very early ideas and principles were displayed, to allow you to discuss the proposal with members of the project team.
The project team has, since that time, been working to take on board your feedback wherever possible. More detailed plans and approaches to the redevelopment of Anglia Square have been prepared and we’re keen to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
The proposal is still developing and not set in stone, comments can still be made on any element.
Comments provided here will be shared with Norwich City Council as part of a Statement of Community Involvement. This report will document the consultation process, feedback, and how comments have been acted upon.
What are we working towards?
As a result of continued discussion with Norwich City Council, the community and statutory consultees, we continue to work towards preparing a hybrid (part “outline”, part “detailed”) planning application that will cover the areas within Phases 1 to 3 in our indicative phasing plan.
Following further consultation over the coming months, we hope to submit the proposal to Norwich City Council in the summer.
Please provide any comments on the material presented here by the 16th April 2017.
The Policy Guidance Note for Anglia Square
Through a separate process, Norwich City Council has worked to prepare a Policy Guidance Note (PGN) to help direct the development of these proposals.
The PGN was subject to public consultation from December 2016 to January 2017 and council officers then further developed the document in light of comments received. The PGN was evaluated by councillors on the Sustainable Development Panel in February and was approved by the Council’s Cabinet, on 15th March.
Columbia Threadneedle has owned Anglia Square since 2014 and is working with Weston Homes Plc to prepare a plan for the potential redevelopment of Anglia Square.
