Neighbourhood Plan update: The Neighbourhood Plan has now reached the Independent Examination stage. Andrew Ashcroft, a Member of the Royal Town Planning Institute, has been appointed to carry out the examination. This is already underway. As is normal at this stage, the Examiner has identified some areas where it would be helpful to have some clarification. At  their meeting on Monday the Parish Council agreed the response to the Examiner that had been recommended by the Neighbourhood Plan Working Group." This can be viewed along with the Examiner's Clarification Note on the West Suffolk Council website here . After reviewing the Parish Council’s response, the Examiner will continue with the conclusion of the examination and  his report will be issued.  The plan will go forward to referendum once any changes recommended by the examiner have been made.  The earliest date is May 2021 as all referendums are on hold until that time due to Covid.
