As previously reported,  the NP team had hoped to present the draft Plan to the Parish Council this month. If adopted, the Plan would then be presented to the public for formal consultation. Before this could happen our Breckland advisor was to check that we were compatible with district council policies, but this has not yet taken place as there are other plans queueing in the Breckland pipeline. We’ll have to wait. All very frustrating, but we want to get things right!



The Parish Council’s Neighbourhood Plan

What is it?
The Plan will guide our Parish Council and Breckland District Council as to what we want for our village over the next 20 years.

What will be in the Plan?
A whole range of issues such as traffic, wildlife, housing, village activities, heritage, recreation and tourism.

Will anybody take any notice of it?
Yes, because the Plan will become a legal document under the Localism Act (2011) and must be used as a guide if any changes are to be made in the village.

Can I be involved?
Yes!  We’re done our big survey of residents’ opinion and next we’ll be involving other organisations as mentioned above and village groups such the under-16s and their parents.  At any time you can email the team or post a post on our Facebook page.

The Neighbourhood Plan is important for the village so we need to know what people think.  We welcome your comments – just email them to  info@NP4NB.online.   We will read them all and put them on the blog.  Have a look at our Facebook page as well.
