Thurston Neighbourhood Plan

The Thurston Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Thurston 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 2. Preparing a draft NDP

The Parish Council have set up a NDP Committee to take their plan forward. For more information please refer to the Thurston Parish Council website

Stage 1. Area Designation (Sept 2013)

In July 2013, the Parish Council submitted an Area Designation Application to define the boundary of their Neighbourhood Plan area. The publication period began on 4 July 2013 and closed on 28 August 2013. Under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), Mid Suffolk District Council confirmed the designated NDP Area on 2 September 2013.
