WHY DEVELOP A PLAN?
The Neighbourhood Plan is being developed by local people working together to improve the quality of life for the people who live, work and visit The Tivetshalls.
Your Parish council has agreed to support and work with you to decide what is important for our communities.
It’s not just about housing, it’s about everything else that goes with it – including employment, leisure, health, education, roads, transport and other infrastructure.
What is involved?
By having in-depth conversations with our local communities, we can provide evidence about the current issues and identify opportunities for future development, helping to improve the quality of life for all those who live, work and visit. By using this information and as much other relevant evidence that we can gather, we can develop policies with which all future planning applications will have to comply once the Plan is complete.
There is a statutory procedure that we must follow; the ﬁnal stage is a referendum where all the electors in the Neighbourhood Plan Area will have the opportunity to vote on the Plan. To be formally adopted, over 50% of the votes must be in favour. It is expected the process will take at least two years, but probably longer given the complexity of this Plan.
