The Elmsett Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Elmsett Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
In an 'out of meeting' decision taken on 10 December 2019 Babergh District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Elmsett NDP following a majority 'yes' vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period to 2036, now forms part of the development plan framework for the district and will be used to determine planning applications in Elmsett unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
The Pre-submission draft NDP was screened to determine whether a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and/or a Habitats Assessment (HRA) were required. Both were 'screened-out'. Copies of the relevant reports and Notices of Determination are published below:
