Elmsett Neighbourhood Plan

The Elmsett Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) has been prepared by Elmsett Parish Council and will be used to help guide and shape future development in the parish. 

Formal Adoption (Dec 2019)

In an 'out of meeting' decision taken on 10 December 2019 Babergh District Council resolved to 'make' (adopt) the Elmsett NDP following a majority 'yes' vote in favour of doing so by local residents.

The Plan, which covers the period to 2036, now forms part of the development plan framework for the district and will be used to determine planning applications in Elmsett unless material considerations indicate otherwise.
