Subject: Sub - Norwich Northern Distributor Road - Full Approval
Please find attached a submission on the following issue:
Norwich Northern Distributor Road – Full Approval
Issue
1. 
Whether to grant Full (final) Approval to Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NNDR) 
scheme, promoted by Norfolk County Council, one of the schemes in the 
programme of Local Authority major schemes.
Recommendation
2. 
We recommend that you:

grant Full Approval with a DfT capital contribution of £77.49m to be provided 
in the years 2015/16 to 2017/18;

write to the Chief Secretary to formally seek HM Treasury approval to the 
scheme (a draft letter is attached at Annex B); and

note the media handling advice at paragraph 11.

Timing
3. 
Routine – but as HM Treasury approval is now required given the total cost has risen 
above the Department’s delegation limit, an early approval will allow momentum on 
the scheme to be maintained.   
Clearance
4. 
This submission and attachments have been cleared by relevant Centres of 
Excellence and the Local Transport Investment Committee.
