Public consultation has taken place throughout the development of the Northern Distributor Road.
The first public consultation was undertaken in 2003 and 2004 on the Norwich Area Transport Strategy.
The planning process for dealing with infrastructure projects which require a DCO was established by the Planning Act 2008, later amended by the Localism Act 2011.
As a project which requires a DCO, pre-application consultations for the NDR have been undertaken in accordance with the Planning Act 2008.
The consultation report details the pre-application consultations undertaken, the responses received during the consultations, the regard Norfolk County Council has given to these responses and the resulting changes that have been made to the NDR proposals.
