Breckland Local Plan – Call for Sites Consultation

Breckland District Council is working on a new Local Plan which will direct development in the District until 2036. This consultation provides the opportunity for landowners and developers to submit sites for consideration to take this future growth.


All sites put forward will undergo a technical assessment to check whether they are suitable and deliverable. Housing sites should be capable of accommodating five dwellings or more and / or have an area of 0.25 hectares or more. Sites for commercial development or other uses should be a minimum of 0.25 hectares or be able to accommodate 500 sqm.


An initial Issues and Option consultation on the new Local Plan, including submitted sites, will be published for public consultation later this year. Further details can be viewed on the link below:


The deadline for submitting sites is the 20th May 2022 and we would be delighted to hear from you if you have land to put forward for consideration.
