Help to stop the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR)

Now is the time to register an objection to the proposed 20 kilometre Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR)  by the deadline of Sunday 23 March.

The NDR is part of a huge new national road building programme for meeting the Government’s predictions of a 40% increase in traffic by 2040. We are encouraging as many people as possible – including people living outside Norfolk - to register with the Planning Inspectorate and send a strong message to Government.

How to register as an Objector with Planning Inspectorate

Massive development and a new 20km road are set to change the face of our fine city for ever, unless we act now.
325 acres of business parks and 10,000 houses just to start
Vast areas of countryside destroyed
Leading to a third ring of development around Norwich
Costing Norfolk residents millions (over £80 million on top of the Government’s £89 million)
