What is the Neighbourhood Plan?

The Badwell Ash & Long Thurlow Neighbourhood Plan is a planning policy document written by the community to guide future development in the area over the next 20 years.

If successful at referendum, the Neighbourhood Plan will become part of the statutory development plan for the area. It will be used to determine planning applications.
