Mendlesham Neighbourhood Plan

The Mendlesham Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Mendlesham Parish Council. When complete, it will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.

Modification of the adopted Mendlesham NDP

Following adoption of the Mendlesham NDP in March 2017, the Parish Council have decided to modify their Plan. The process for doing so is set out in the relevant regulations and requires a repeat of the preparation process. This begins with a pre-submission consultation.
