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

Progress to date ...

Stage 2. Preparing a draft NDP

The Parish Council are setting up a Working Group to take their plan forward. Further details may be available on the Long Melford Parish Council website.

Stage 1. Area Designation Consultation (22 Feb 2017)

In December 2016, the Parish Council submitted an Area Designation Application to define the boundary of their Neighbourhood Plan area. The application included a Supporting Statement. The publication period began on 13 Jan 2017 and closed on 10 Feb 2017. Under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), Babergh District Council confirmed the designated NDP Area on 22 Feb 2017. A notice to this effect can be viewed below:
