Great Yeldham Parish Plan


Neighburhood Plan


The Parish Council are keen to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for the village.  Although this project is Parish Council led it will involve the community.


This document will set out planning policies for Gt Yeldham which will be used to decide whether to approve planning applications.  The Plan will involve and be written by the local community, the people who know and love the area, rather than the Local Planning Authority. The Plan will ensure the community gets the right types of development, in the right place.


The Parish Council would welcome your views and input into the plan and will be holding a public consultation event about Neighbourhood Plans and how you can get involved.
