Woolpit Neighbourhood Plan

The Woolpit Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is being prepared by Woolpit 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 (May 2019)

The outcome was that the need for both were 'screened-out'. A copy of the relevant reports and Notices of Determination are published below:

Stage 1. Area Designation (May 2016)

The publication period began on 4 April 2016 and closed on 4 May 2016. Under the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended), Mid Suffolk District Council confirmed the designated NDP Area on 4 May 2016.
