Norwich Western Link Local Access Consultation has launched

Information from Norfolk County Council (NCC)

To advise the Norwich Western Link Local Access Consultation was launched Monday 27 July and will run for eight weeks.

Through this consultation we’re asking for views on the four local roads that cross the route of the Norwich Western Link and Public Rights of Way in the vicinity of the new road. We also want feedback on potential measures to support walking, cycling and public transport use across a wider area. In coming up with these proposals, we’ve had input from parish councils, walking and cycling groups, bus companies and others, and we’re now keen to see what everyone else thinks of them.

You can now view information on the proposals and respond to the consultation by filling in a questionnaire online via the Norfolk County Council website at

Copies of the consultation brochure and paper questionnaire can also be requested by ringing 0344 800 8020 or emailing and giving us your postal address. The completed questionnaire can then be returned to a freepost address.

If once you have looked at the proposals you have questions or would like to discuss them with staff involved in the project before responding to the consultation, we’re making phone and internet call appointments so you can do just that.

You can use the email and telephone contact details mentioned above to book an appointment to speak with members of the project team during the consultation period, with daytime and evening slots available. We would recommend people contact us as soon as possible after the consultation period has started to organise an appointment so that we can do our best to accommodate your request.

We’re looking forward to getting people’s feedback on the proposals in the Local Access Consultation before it closes on Sunday 20 September. The responses we receive will help inform design decisions and proposals for the project.

A further public consultation on other elements of the project is due to be held next year ahead of the planning application being submitted. Subject to securing funding and completing necessary statutory processes, the Norwich Western Link is scheduled to start construction in 2023 and open to traffic in 2025.
