Made ANP – Vision

The Vision

By 2036, Attleborough will be a successful example of community-planned growth, an enterprising,
sustainable, attractive and prosperous market town within East Anglia. It will be at the centre of a
vibrant employment area, well linked to the A11 and providing first class services and facilities to its community and rural hinterland.

The growth will be driven by new economic and employment investment, encouraging small and
medium sized enterprises with business innovation and transport links, including advanced engineering, research and development, logistics, food production and agriculture. New and expanding retail outlets and community facilities such as schools, health and social care and sports venues will also provide jobs and help establish the town as a predominately self-sustaining community.

New housing of mixed tenure and type and incorporating sustainable design and construction to meet the needs of the community, will be integrated with new and existing facilities. The town will be supported by sufficient infrastructure improvements, with first class education, health, social, leisure and community facilities.

Movement and access within and around the town will be provided by integrating safe and well-designed walking, cycling and public transport networks. Highway and rail improvements will provide access to Attleborough from surrounding areas.

The environment and green spaces within and at the edge of the town will be enhanced and protected, and new green spaces and habitats will be created.

The built environment will be protected and enhanced with low energy, high-quality design. Protecting the historic environment will be a key principle.

Attleborough will be at the forefront of sustainable living, developed and implemented through
innovative partnership working.
