Long Stratton 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
The Plan was subject to an independent examination and the final report was received on the 5th July 2021. The examiner recommended that the plan, once modified with the recommended changes, proceeds to referendum. You can see a copy of the report by clicking on the link below.
On the 19th July 2021 South Norfolk Council approved the plan to proceed to referendum, subject to the specified modifications.
Our long-term goal is to make sure that Long Stratton
is the best place to live, work and play anywhere in the UK.
As a qualifying body in accordance with section 61g of the 1990 Town and Country Planning Act as amended by the Localism Act 2011 and Section 5 of the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012, Long Stratton Parish Council is undertaking a Neighbourhood Plan
