Hartest Neighbourhood Plan

The Hartest Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Hartest Parish Council. When complete it may set out the views of the community about:

  • Establishing planning policies for the development and use of land;
  • Locations within the parish where new homes, employment and community uses should be located, and
  • the appearance and design of any new buildings constructed

Progress to date ...

Stage 3. Second Pre-submission Consultation (21 Mar - 3 May 2018)

Hartest Parish Council published a Pre-submission consultation version of their NDP in Spring 2017. In response to comments made at that time and to address more recent changes in local planning, they published a second (updated) Pre-submission document for comment. The consultation period ran from Wed 21 March until Thur 3 May 2018. Please visit the Hartest Parish Council website to find out more.

Stage 2. Involving the community and scoping issues at heart

The parish council have engaged and worked with their local community to develop the Hartest NDP.   

Stage 1. Area Designation (June 2014)

In April 2014, the Parish Council submitted an Area Designation Application to define the boundary of their Neighbourhood Plan area. The application was accompanied by a Supporting Statement which explained why the proposed area is considered appropriate. The publication period began on 22 April 2013 and closed on 3 June 2014. Under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, Babergh District Council confirmed the designated Neighbourhood Plan Area on 5 June 2014. A notice to this effect can be viewed below:
