Copdock & Washbrook Neighbourhood Plan

  • allocate sites within the parish for new homes, employment and community land uses;
  • provide further guidance on the appearance and design of any new buildings.

Stage 2 - Preparing a draft NDP

Responsibility for preparing the NDP now rests with the Parish Council and local community. Further details may be available on the Parish Council website.
