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.
New Update (Apr 2018) - Proposed Modification of Adopted NDP
Following the successful adoption of the Mendlesham NDP (see below) the Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Group now feel that it is necessary to carry out a review of their Plan to include the allocation of sites for future development. The process for doing this is set out in the relevant regulations but, essentially, it requires them to repeat the process, starting with Regulation 14 Pre-submission consultation.
To understand more about their reasons for undertaking this review, and to read about the work undertaken to date please visit the Mendlesham Parish Council website.
Adopted Mendlesham NDP (Mar 2017)
At its Full Council meeting on 23 March 2017, Mid Suffolk District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Mendlesham NDP following a 94% 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 is one of the main considerations in determining planning applications submitted in Mendlesham unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
