The East Bergholt Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by East Bergholt Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
Following the successful adoption of the East Bergholt NDP in 2016 (see below) the Neighbourhood Plan Committee have been reformed to carry out a review and update this Plan. The method for doing this is set out in the relevant regulations. Essentially, it requires them to repeat the process, starting with Regulation 14 Pre-submission consultation.
See the Parish Council NDP web page for more details.
At its Full Council meeting on 20 September 2016, Babergh District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the East Bergholt NDP following a majority 'yes' vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period up to 2030, now forms part of the development plan framework for the District and will be used in the determination of planning applications submitted in East Bergholt unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
