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.

Despite the TAAP being a formal planning policy document, Breckland District Council (as the planning authority) has not been very effective at ensuring a number of these policies were delivered. As a result several local enhacements and facilities have not been provided as they should have been.

The TAAP as a whole has now been superseded by the Breckland Local Plan, but a number of the policies in the TAAP have been 'saved' by being incorporated into the new plan. These saved policies that are:
