Thetford Area Action Plan (TAAP)

The Thetford Area Action Plan (TAAP) is a formal planning document produced and adopted by Breckland District Council in 2012. It contains the blueprint for Thetford's Sustainable Urban Expansion (the Kingsfleet development) and a number of planning policies that should govern developments within the town.

The TAAP will shortly be superseded by the Breckland Local Plan when it is formally adopted, but a number of the policies in the TAAP have been 'saved' by being incorporated into the new plan The TAAP policies that are proposed to be 'saved' in the Local Plan are:
