Norfolk Rural Strategy 2021-2024 Survey

Closed 19 Mar 2021

Opened 12 Feb 2021


We need your help to shape the next edition of the Norfolk Rural Strategy! 

The Norfolk Rural Strategy was produced in 2013, on behalf of an extensive public-private partnership, with a steering group supported by Norfolk County Council.  It is refreshed every 3 years and we are asking for your ideas to address the challenges and opportunities Rural Norfolk faces today. 

The principles underpinning the Strategy are to:

  • Be ambitious for Rural Norfolk so it delivers quality of life for all age groups
  • Make the case for Rural Norfolk to decision makers at every level - from district to national
  • Ensure businesses, communities and partners have access to the data and evidence to make the case for investment in Rural Norfolk
  • Learn from other areas and build on successful models of rural development elsewhere.

The draft Strategy is  available to download at the bottom of this page. The previous 2017 version can be downloaded here (downloads as a pdf file).

The survey asks for your views on the vision, themes and priority actions for the next edition – it is a work in progress, and we welcome your ideas.

You can skip any questions you don’t want to answer, or that aren’t relevant to your area of interest. 

You can also choose to provide your email address if you would like to save your response before submitting it or to download a copy of it.

Please submit your response by 5pm on Friday 19 March 2021.

If you would like to submit additional documentation to support your response (such as a report or case study which could help make the case for investment) please email it to

If you have any queries about the survey, or need it in a different format, such as a paper copy, please email, call 0344 800 8020 or Text Relay on 18001 0344 800 8020 (textphone) and we will do our best to help.
