Accessibility of the Local Plan website

Statement regarding the accessibility of documents on this website

The purpose of this website is to provide a platform for the various stages of Great Yarmouth Borough Council's Local Plan preparation. Much of the documentation involved is developed at very short notice or provided by third parties.

The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning Regulations) 2012, regulation 35, requires us to publish these documents on our website. Furthermore, we are also required to publish our plans in accordance with our Statement of community involvement  as laid out in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

We believe that, with the complexity of the documents and the short period of time that they are required for, the time required to make these fully accessible constitutes a disproportionate burden as defined under the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

However, we will endeavour to make our published documents as accessible as possible, and will respond to any request for further assistance regarding accessing our documents. You can contact us by email at
