The Mendlesham Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Mendlesham Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
Following the successful adoption of the Mendlesham NDP in March 2017 (see below) the Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Group decided that it is necessary to carry out a review of the Plan to include the allocation of sites for future development. The process for doing that is set out in the relevant regulations but, essentially, it requires a repeat of the preparation process, starting with Regulation 14 Pre-submission consultation.
To find out more about their reasons for undertaking this review, and to see the latest news please visit the Mendlesham Parish Council website.
At its Full Council meeting on 23 March 2017, Mid Suffolk District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Mendlesham NDP following a 94% 'yes' vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period up to 2031, now forms part of the development plan framework for the District and will be used when determining planning applications submitted in Mendlesham unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
