What is a Neighbourhood Plan?
The Walsham le Willows Neighbourhood Plan is a planning policy document written by the community to guide future development in the area between 2023 and 2037. It is the first of its kind for the parish and is part of the Government’s current approach to planning.
The Steering Group want to know your views on the draft Plan. Once the Neighbourhood Plan is ‘made’, Mid Suffolk District Council will use it to help to determine planning applications.
Walsham le Willows Parish Council will also use the Neighbourhood Plan to respond to planning applications. The Walsham le Willows Neighbourhood Plan is not a means of stopping development; it is there to ensure that any development takes place in an appropriate way for the area.
