Debenham Neighbourhood Plan

The Debenham Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Debenham 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 ...

SEA / HRA Screening & Determination (Mar 2018)

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

Stage 3. Pre-submission Consultation (1 Feb - 16 Mar 2018)

A Regulation 14 Pre-submission consultation on the draft Debenham NDP was undertaken by the parish council between the above dates. See the Debenham PC website for more details.
