Thurston Neighbourhood Plan
The Thurston Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by the Parish Council and local community and will now be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish.
Formal Adoption (Oct 2019)
At its Full Council meeting on 24 October 2019, Mid Suffolk District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Thurston NDP following a majority 'Yes' vote in favour of doing so by local residents.
The Plan, which covers the period up to 2036, now forms part of the development plan framework for the District. It will be used in the determination of planning applications submitted in Thurston, unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
