Neighbourhood Plan


Welcome to the HAUGHLEY PARISH NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN page on our website!

Part of the process of completing a Neighbourhood Plan is to present a draft Plan to all parishioners for a formal Six-Week Consultation period.   

This is know as the Pre-Submission Plan.  The Haughley Six-Week Consultation period commences at 4.00 pm on Friday, 25 May 2018 and ends on Saturday, 7 July 2018.   

Please find here the Pre-Submission Plan for Haughley Parish together with the Supporting Documents.   Thank you for your time.

Just click on the highlighted wording to open the relevant document.

Copies of the initial Draft Plan document, which mostly concerns possible housing development, will be ready for you to see on Friday, 25th May 2018 in the Green Room, Village Hall between 4.00 and 7.00 pm and on Saturday, 26th May 2018 in the Village Hall between 9.30 am and 3.30 pm.

This will be the start of the formal Six-Week Consultation period when the Draft Plan is presented to all residents of Haughley Parish for your examination. A leaflet giving brief details, and where copies of the Draft Plan will be located elsewhere during this period, will be sent to every home in the Parish before the start of the Six-Week Consultation.

This is your Plan – now you can have your say.

We are encouraged by the Government to engage with local people to have a say about what is developed within their Parish.  Accordingly, we are creating a Haughley Parish Neighbourhood Plan (HPNP).  This will be used to help inform issues focused on Housing and the Built Environment, Environment and Landscape, Community, Services, and Transport and Access within our Parish.  The Neighbourhood Plan will ultimately become a legal document for determining planning policy within Mid Suffolk District Council and will have to be considered by developers when making any planning application.

You will find information from the recent Housing Needs Survey Executive Summary  and a link to the Haughley Designated Area, which of course includes Haughley Green and Haughley New Street.

The Neighbourhood Plan Working Party meet on the second Thursday of every month at 19:30 in the Old Reading Room in Haughley Village Hall.  Should anyone wish to attend the meetings, please do not hesitate to come along.   

We also welcome anyone who is interested in joining the Neighbourhood Plan Working Party. For further information please contact Marian Adams 01449 674411 or marian.adams88@gmail.com.
