Long Melford Neighbourhood Plan

The Long Melford Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Long Melford 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 facilities should be located
  • The appearance and design of any new buildings

SEA / HRA Screening & Determination (March / April 2019)

The Pre-submission draft version of the NDP was assessed to determine whether a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) and/or a Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) were required. The outcome of this exercise was that the need for an SEA Scoping Report was 'screened in', and the need for an HRA Scoping Report was 'screened-out'. A copy of the Screening Report and relevant Notices of Determination are published below:
