Ardleigh Neighbourhood Plan

Designation of the Neighbourhood Area

Tendring District Council received an application to designate a neighbourhood area from Ardleigh Parish Council over the winter of 2019-20. The application proposed that the neighbourhood area should cover the entire parish of Ardleigh and that this would be the area covered by the Ardleigh Neighbourhood Plan.

The application for the Neighbourhood Area can be found here - Letter - Map showing the area

In accordance with paragraph 6 and 6A of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, as amended in 2015, Tendring District Council held an 8 week period of public consultation from Monday 20 January - Monday 16 March 2020 on the proposed designation.

On the 8th June 2020 the Council’s Planning Policy and Local Plan Committee considered Ardleigh Parish Council’s request to designate the whole of the Parish to form the Neighbourhood Plan Area. At that meeting it was resolved that the application from Ardleigh Parish Council to designate the whole of the Ardleigh Parish as a Neighbourhood Development Plan Area (NDPA) be noted and that that designation be approved.

This means that the District Council has formally agreed the Neighbourhood Plan Area allowing the Parish Council to proceed with the preparation of their Neighbourhood Plan.

Consultation on the neighbourhood plan itself will follow and this first stage is only about the area to be included with the proposed plan.
