Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan steering group committee are very pleased to announce that following a referendum on 30th September 2021, in which more than half of those who voted did so in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan, South Norfolk Council has decided to ‘make’ the Long Stratton Neighbourhood Plan part of the Development Plan for the District. This decision was taken by South Norfolk Council on 11th October 2021. 

Long Stratton Neighbourhood Plan now forms part of the Statutory Development plan for South Norfolk and will be used in the determination of planning applications within the neighbourhood area.

The question that was asked at the referendum was 'Do you want South Norfolk Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Long Stratton to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area?'

The result was:

Yes - 379

No - 106
