The parish council continue to develop their NDP following the consultation exercise that took place in Spring 2020.

Initial screening of the latest version of the NDP took place in late 2021. This screening was in place to decide whether a strategic environmental assessment (SEA) and/or a habitats regulations assessment (HRA) were needed.

The draft NDP went through further screening in Summer 2022, where it was decided that an SEA and an HRA were not needed.
