July 2021


What is happening?

The current Neighbourhood Development Plan (adopted in March 2017) is being updated. In particular areas for future development have been identified and some of the development policies have been updated.

Further to the consultation ending 12th April 2021, responses have been received, considered and changes made as considered appropriate. 

What next?

The draft Neighbourhood Development Plan has now been submitted to Mid Suffolk District Council (MSDC) for its consideration. Once approval is received from MSDC the draft Neighbourhood Development Plan can be put forward for a local referendum where all residents have the opportunity to vote for, or against. 

Where do I find information about the consultation?

The draft Neighbourhood Development Plan is a single document that has 54 Supporting Documents (that evidence the work done and conclusions reached).

The documents are available as follows: 

  • The draft Neighbourhood Plan document 
  • The SEA and regulation folder containing the required Regulation 14 statement identifying the major changes being introduced, confirming the need for further consultation and the SEA Environmental Report (and Addendum). 
  • A supporting files folder containing one folder for all other supporting documents and another with the figures/maps that will be incorporated into the  final Neighbourhood Plan document.
