Our Neighbourhood Plan

This plan is our community’s opportunity to shape and guide development
that will take place in our area and make sure that it is appropriate to our
needs and aspirations. We can have a real say in where it goes and how it looks!

Draft Policies have now been created

Draft policies that have been created as a result of the feedback you gave us.

As a result of both COVID and the delays and uncertainties associated with the EFDC Local Plan, the Parish Council agreed to halt work on the Neighbourhood Plan until such time as there was greater clarity as to the outcome of the Local Plan. Towards the end of 2022, Councillors considered this issue again, and felt that it was vital the Council finished what it had started and should continue with the Neighbourhood Plan, given the high level of involvement by local residents. Now that the Local Plan has been found Sound, the framework alongside which the Neighbourhood Plan sits is now clear, and we expect work on the Neighbourhood Plan to restart.
