Ardleigh Neighbourhood Plan

Consultation on Ardleigh Neighbourhood Plan (Reg 15 and 16)

 What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a way for communities – in this case Ardleigh Parish Council, to take a proactive approach to deciding the future of the places where they live and work. Once ‘made’ (adopted) a Neighbourhood Plan has the same legal status as the district wide Local Plan, and will be used alongside the Local Plan in deciding planning applications that fall within its area.
