Needham Market Neighbourhood Plan

The Needham Market Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Needham Market Town 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 ...
