The Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) is being produced by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council working together with Norfolk County Council through the Greater Norwich Development Partnership (GNDP).
They aim to produce a plan which will help to meet local housing and economic growth needs, whilst also protecting and enhancing the environment. This involves a number of stages of consultation.
They are currently at stage B of the “Regulation 18” phase, the New, Revised and Small Sites consultation. This consultation will run from 9am on Monday 29th October to 5pm on Friday 14th December 2018 and we are asking for your views on these sites.

The outdoor bowls club has managed to get Tesco’s Beccles and Southwold stores to feature the club in their charity token collection boxes during January and February. If you happen to use these stores please support the club.
The bowls season has now finished. Wortwell played in 2 different leagues. The EBA South zone 1 which is a male league played on Wednesday evenings. Unfortunately being in the first division proved challenging, playing 12 games and only winning one! although several were very narrow defeats, and needless to say we will be playing in the second division next season.
On Tuesday evenings Wortwell play in the Upper Waveney mixed league, and were more successful winning 9 out of 20 matches finishing 8th out of eleven. this year all the players thoroughly enjoyed themselves especially as the weather was so good.
We also welcomed some new members ,which was great but we would still love more people to enjoy this wonderful village amenity.
Calls Friday’s every 4 weeks
