Seventeen projects in the greater Norwich area could receive almost £1.7m in funding over the next five years.
The schemes include improvements to Marriott's Way, four football pitches and a new sports hub in Long Stratton.
In addition to the £1.639m earmarked for the community schemes, a further £2m has been allocated towards new schools.
The draft greater Norwich investment plan, which went before Norwich City Council's cabinet today, said 16 primary schools and a secondary school are to be built. Twelve other schools in the greater Norwich area will also be extended.
The delivery of the projects will be funded from the Infrastructure Investment Fund – the pooled Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) income.
